Ok I'm a newbie and sure this has been asked before. I'm trying to do a few patches & was wondering how to do it, they are going to be sew on. Just wondering how they get cut out & stuff like that. I was told you can get poly/twill material & sew on that & cut them out???? Any help appreciated...Thanks

I am not sure exactly what type of patches you are looking to make. I know there are companies that make patches such as this company Custom Embroidered Patches from Clothing Labels 4U. But I think it really depends on what type of patch you are looking to use. Maybe you can give us more details, and we may be able to help more :) And welcome to the forums.

Hello!
I've made some patches by myself-it's really lot of work.
I screenprinted my patches -but embroided would look better
Then cut a shape with the scisors :)
Iron the form-flex on,so it's not so thin,
iron the form flex under the shirt-so it doesn't wrinkles while sewing,
put some adhesive spray on the patch-so it stays in one place on the shirt,
and sew it on with thick zig-zag stitch with regular sewing machine.
Looks good-but too much work...
And it took me some time to find form-flex-I even posted a question about it:
Pellon that looks like a regular fabric

I still look for better way to make patches-or maybe I will go without them :)
