It is a Merrow Machine. If you are doing a 2 sided then you will have to sew 2 patches and put them together.

How? I'm trying to do a two sided tag.
The merrow border stitch is the way to do it.
It's much faster, and you can do it with a used home grade overlocker.
You can buy one of these on ebay for around $100.

As binki said... if you want to use an embroidery machine, you'll have to do the two sides separately and then glue them or heat press them together.

For light use, a cheap overlocker can do it as well.
For very thick materials or heavy use, an industrial overlocker is needed.
Using regular thread is not the best option obviously. There are special threads for this.
