How to Make Machine Embroidered Patches without an Embroidery Machine

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
THE IRON IS YOUR FRIEND
THE IRON IS YOUR FRIEND
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 ;) )
