Q&A: make a patch from my machine embroidery?

Question by Karen: make a patch from my machine embroidery?
I want to do an embroidery or applique from my embroidery machine, and sell this as a patch. Do I apply the two sided heat transfer before running the design? Do I run the design and then cut out the transfer and apply to the embroidered side? Then the customer peels off the paper and applies to their own item? Please help! Have never done this before.

Best answer:

Answer by HappyDog
I’d get the type of fusible web that has two backings, apply the first side AFTER I embroider the design and have the customer peel off the second backing and iron it on. One tip: put the face of the embroidery on a folded terry towel when you iron the fusible on. That will keep the iron from crushing the embroidery.

But be aware that it’s probably a copyright infringement for you to sell a design that was created by anyone else. Unless you had a design that you created digitized it could be problem.

Best of luck.

Q&A: How do I put words, or a patch onto a quilt?

Question by Kelly: How do I put words, or a patch onto a quilt?
I’m really new to quilting, and I was curious on how to add like the word Mother to my quilt, or how to put some flowers on a quilt without embroidering it myself? And ideas of websites that offer this stuff would be great too! Also, when you order a panel kit offline, does it come with the whole top and bottom of the blanket, or is it just the picture?

Best answer:

Answer by Mike1942f
If you are ordering just the single panel, then it is just the piece of fabric. Quilting consists of joining a large and usually smooth and single colored back sheet, the filling quilt batting and the front with an attractive pattern of stitches that holds the whole together while enhancing the details of the face pieces – following edges of printed patterns, etc. Although there is also a quilting style where the stitching lines curve across the straight line picture pattern for making a second set of designs.
Normally the words would be printed or embroidered on a piece of cloth which would be sewn to other pieces and then turned over to hide the edges and sewn down. A badge could be treated the same way or sewn on like it was being put on a person’s sleeve/shirt.

Q&A: Need help identifying a military patch.?

Question by HaleyLovesYoungGuns: Need help identifying a military patch.?
I was at a gun show with my father a couple of years ago and I bought these two patches. I lost one and would really like help finding it again.

- My father and I are 99% percent sure it an Army patch.
- It was this shape or very close to it. http://www.popularairsoft.com/files/images/KA-AC-6063-TAN.jpg
- The border was brown, the background was tan-ish and it had a big brown lion’s face on it.

Thank you so much for your help!
It is just the lion’s face, not his whole body.
The patch in the example is NOT the patch, it is just an example to show people the shape of the patch.
