In the modern world of clothing, some elements remain unchanged: beads, sequins, pearls and Swarovski pebbles – are classic decorative elements. Nevertheless, patches are at the peak of their popularity. For some reason earlier, these two words were associated with military either uniforms or sportswear. Now we decorate a wide variety of our wardrobe items with patches.
Today we want to tell you about them a little more. Patches are machine embroidery on a special dense material, which is glued or sewn on top of the fabric basis, that is, the finished product. You can use our Machine embroidery design Dragonfly to create such a patch (stripe). The decoration of wardrobe items by insects is now very popular. Butterflies, dragonflies, ants, ladybugs, beetles and centipedes are fun and fervently fluttering on clothes from the latest fashion collections of famous designers and couturiers.
Imagine how original and unusual your jeans jacket, leather jacket or coat with such unusual and beautiful dragonfly embroidery pattern will look. Moreover, if you decorate the sneakers with it, then the dragonfly will fly with each your step, as if alive.
Note: Machine embroidery design Dragonfly is presented in one single size. It is perfect for a patch on a jacket.

To decorate smaller wardrobe items (patch on sneakers, caps and jeans pockets), use the additional service of resizing the design. This will make it possible to create original and unique kits and to create a full and complete image.
The process of implementing such patches is quite simple. If you follow the correct sequence, use of improvised materials for chevrons, and a suitable embroidery technology, you will spend 40 minutes creating the original item.
So, to create an extravagant patch with a dragonfly you will need:
~ Machine embroidery design Dragonfly
~ Medium-weight cut-away stabilizer
~ Temporary spray adhesive
~ Thick fabric, for example, twill or canvas
~ Special glue base for chevrons, for example, Polyeo Ultra
~ Adhesive for textiles
~ Skill and sleight of hand
If you have collected all the necessary materials, you can go to the process itself.
At the beginning, you need to embroider Machine embroidery design Dragonfly on the fabric-base. For this, make the same action as usual: sprinkle the cut-away stabilizer, glue the fabric to it, hoop it all together and embroider the dragonfly embroidery pattern.
Everything is as usual. After you have made such a preparation, you can proceed to creating a patch.
To do this, follow the instructions:
~ Cut off the excess stabilizer, as close as possible to the embroidery, so that it can not be seen at the edges of the patch.
~ Then cut off excess fabric, retreating from the dragonfly embroidery pattern a long distance.
~ Take the necessary piece of self-adhesive backing for chevrons. In this case, the Polyeo Ultra is perfect.
~ Carefully read the instructions for using this material. So, for example, Polyeo Ultra is glued to the fabric with a hot iron.
~ Put the fabric along with the embroidery on the adhesive base with embroidery up.
~ Iron it, using a thin natural fabric as a lining between a hot iron and embroidery.
~ Now carefully cut out the embroidery with scissors.
~ Tear off the protective paper and glue the patch to the product.
~ In addition, fix its edges with a textile glue.
Now you can brag of unique items and accessories. Probably, many of you are convinced that the popularity of such patches is justified. It is much easier to embroider a design on a dense stable fabric and then stick a patch on the product, rather than study, consider the process of embroidery on materials such as leather, suede or velvet.
In addition, there are situations where the product is difficult to hoop, and sometimes almost impossible. In this case, the patch become a magic wand.
In addition, the useful advice from Royal Present:
Since the fabric of the product on which we glue the chevron can be of different shades, change the color of the patch fabric, depending on the situation. For example, to decorate black leather or jeans products, the black base is more suitable, and for decoration of caps, shoes and bags of light colors use white base.
Do not miss the opportunity to add creativity, unusualness and chic to your look. Update your clothes with embroidered patches, and be in a trend in any situation.
