How to make an embroidered badge

An embroidered badge is a very unique way to make a garment look different and stand out from the others. It can make an ordinary outfit look extraordinary and is a great way to lend character and distinction to it. In fact embroidered badges are extremely useful especially when you want to lend a certain amount of distinction to a uniform. It can also serve to distinguish any garment which has to be worn to service any institution or organization. So be it a camping team, a hiking team, a PTA committee or your garden club, an embroidered badge can become your differentiating factor distinguishing you from the rest.

When you want to make an embroidered badge you have to be prepared to work in a systematic and organized manner. The first thing that you will need to identify is the purpose behind wanting to make this badge. This step will make your vision clear for you and will help you decide on your badges theme. Once you have decided what you want your theme to be then you can decide if you want a small writing on it. Then you have to choose the image that you want on the badge. You can customize the badge as you want and can make a badge which has an image or picture and writing on it. Or you can choose to have any one, either the writing or a picture on the badge.

In order to make sure that your embroidered looks smart and clearly represents the thoughts and ideals behind its purpose you need to make sure that it is minimalistic in design. Try to keep the writing as short as possible but make sure that the writing conveys the message that you want it to convey. Also do not have a very elaborate and intricate image as that will take away the purpose of the badge.

Once you have your basics in place you need to come up with the design of the badge on paper. Have a couple of designs ready on paper. Color the designs as you would want on the badge to get a clear idea of how the finished product will look. Once you have got the final design on paper you will have a clear idea of how the design needs to be executed and how the end product is supposed to look.

Along with this you need to decide on the size of the embroidered badge and choose the shape as well. Draw the badge on paper to the exact size and shape to make sure that it will fit well. Now that all this is done you will have to choose the background color of your badge. You will need to purchase a heavy cotton fabric for this background. Choose a fabric color that is the same as the background that you want. Also make sure that this color background will complement and suitably contrast the elements that you want to embroider. Now trace the design on the background and start to embroider. Once you are done, use sewing scissors to cut out your badge and use glue to stick another piece of cloth on it to make it firm. Fix a pin on your ready badge and it is ready for use.
