Step by Step Guide to Creating Patches

Step 1 >> Create your patch design with three things in mind
- Must have a satin running stitch as a border, wider is better than narrow.
- Keep border and shape of patch smooth for easier cutting.
- Selected Patch Material will be your background color - no stitches needed.

Step 2 >> Hoop Patch Material without any stabilizer/backing/topping.

Step 3 >> Sew out patch/badge design. ALWAYS sew out more than what you need for mistakes.

Step 4 >> Un-hoop and trim off excess Patch Material, keeping all patches together if sewn out as a group.

Step 5 >> Attach Patch Material to Heat Seal product...
- Place flat Teflon sheet down to protect Heat Press.
- Place Patch Material face down on Heat Press or table if using iron.
- Place Heat Seal material face down on top of sewn out patches with paper side up.
- Patch Material has hot melt adhesive on backside so use Teflon sheet on top, making a Teflon Patch sandwich.
- Heat @ 320-330 degrees for 10-15 seconds. Using 40 psi of pressure or significant hand pressure for iron – no steam. Then turn it over and heat it again, twice is nice.

Step 6 >> Roughly cut out the sealed patches, removing excess patch/seal material, leaving quarter to half inch of material surrounding satin stitch border.

Step 7 >> Heat up Hot Knife with Universal Tip for 15 minutes – use safety stand.

Step 8 >> Cut out individual patch/badge with Hot Knife...
- Place individual patch face-up on smooth GLASS surface, begin running hot Universal Tip along edge of patch directly next to satin stitch.
- Hand speed/pressure will cause patch to be cut & sealed, leaving a finished patch.
- Use dry paper towel/cloth as a “wipe-off” station for hot tip if residue appears.
- Practice using hand pressure and speed of tool movement to guide you.

Finished Patch/Badge can be applied directly to garment with heat or sewn on.

If heated, use 320-330 degrees for 15-20 seconds, then turn garment over and press from the back-side for 15-20 seconds more. You’re done!

* Helpful hint is to heat patch/badge briefly on top-side of garment for proper placement then to turn garment inside-out and apply heat to back-side of patch so heat is directly applied to Heat Seal side of patch/badge.
