I recently received an instructables patch and wanted to sew it on my jacket. I figured that there are probably other people out there that would like to sew a patch onto an article of clothing but don't know how, so I decided to make a simple instructable on how to do just that! If you have any suggestions or questions, please leave a comment!
Step 1: What You Need
For this project, you will need the following:
Thread. I chose white because it blends with the white on the patch.
A patch that you want to sew onto your shirt or jacket
A shirt or jacket that you want to sew your patch onto
Step 2: Sew It Up!
To start off, decide where you want your patch. I put mine on the upper left side on the front of my jacket. After you decide where you want it, put your safety pin through the patch and the shirt or jacket. Start by threading your needle. After that, poke the needle through the shirt and the patch, this is the start of the first stitch. After you do that, pull the thread and needle until there is almost no thread left on the other side. Tie a knot on the side opposite of the patch. The knot will prevent the thread from coming out. Now, poke the needle through the side with the patch facing up about 2 to 3 millimeter away from the first one. Pull the thread until it is tight . Repeat this process around the whole patch, making sure to get them as close and single file as possible.
Step 3: You're Done!
If you have stitched all the way around, then take the end of the thread, poke it through so it is on the opposing side of the patch, then, tie a knot so the thread doesn't come loose. Cut the excess thread off and your Done! Enjoy your new jacket or shirt with your new patch!
