Step 2: Prepare Your Base Fabric, part 1

If you chose a lighter-weight fabric for your base fabric, you are going to need to interface it in order for it to keep its body and shape.

BUT FIRST: PRESS YOUR FABRIC.

Heat up your iron to the setting that is appropriate for the fabric you are using. In this case, wool, I set my iron to 5.

REMEMBER:
THE IRON IS YOUR FRIEND

Fabric always looks better when it's not wrinkly. (In case you couldn't tell, this is a pet peeve of mine ;) )
<p>This article is very deep. I am impressed<br>by the vision of the author. &lt;b&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.digitemb.com/&quot;&gt;<strong>Digitizing Services</strong>&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/b&gt;</p>
<p>Dude, I searched google for how to make patches for my Engie cosplay but I only searched &quot;How to make embroidered patches&quot; and this came up and I was so happy to see a fellow TF2 fan. I about screamed.</p>
<p>AWESOME THX THX THX</p>
<p>so i think it would be fun if you could make a tamakoma branch patch from world trigger</p>
How do you keep the patches from furling? I sewed two layers of canvas together, following your directions, but it came out a tad wonky. I'm not sure if the tension was off (it looks fine?) and it stretched a bit, or...something else? Have you had that problem?
You may need to use a hoop to keep your tension even throughout your design. It could also be that your second layer of canvas moved while you were sewing and that messed up your tension. If you aren't using a hoop, you need to make sure your interfacing or stabilizer is stuck to the back of your fabric so it doesn't move around.
Or, if you are afraid of ruining your screen, measure the rings (in this case) and draw them based on the measurements. <br>Or draw most of the outlines VERY lightly with a soft pencil. <br>(I almost made a permanent my little pony in my 20&quot; screen ^^''')
Is this all there is to hear about using a non embroidery machine for embroidery? : (
What do you mean?
A note might want to be added about compasses: Don't poke a hole if you're using a soft (ish) laptop computer screen. Muffed up screens can be disastrous. Just a note of caution.
good job on the sniper patches!
Nice tutorial man! Being the Portal geek that I am, I would say &quot;This was a triumph&quot;, but I'm going as Soldier this year, so I say, &quot;You deserve a medal&quot; =)<br/>
