Felt Sew-On Patches

Blossom Lady
Feb 26, 2021 08:44 AM

This patch style requires minimal edge finishing because the felt won't fray like other fabrics. It's also sewn in place, so you know that your stitching won't go anywhere. To make felt patches, you need only the felt to embroider on, a marking method, and thread to attach it with.

It is hard to imagine denim jackets without thinking about the various ways to customize this iconic item of clothing. Some of the very first sewing I ever did was to meticulously hand sew patches onto a denim jacket—patches that told any passerby what was likely playing through my headphones. This drive to personalize what I wear is part of what drew me to sewing. This spirit still lives on through my day-to-day garment sewing, and I wanted to revisit the idea of embellishment in the form of patches, combining nostalgia with something I would wear now.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to create graphic custom felt patches that can be applied to your me-made projects or used to upcycle a well-loved piece. The technique is simple, but the results are bold, colorful, and fun!

Materials:

  • Trace paper
  • Pencil
  • Water-soluble marking tool
  • Felt in various colors
  • Sewing thread in matching colors
  • Paper-back fusible web
  • Embroidery floss (optional)
