NOTES:
1.

Patch is created in several steps.

First, yarn A is worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

This piece is then felted.

An octagon shape is cut from the felted fabric and then embroidered.

2.

The Patch is meant to be made your way – choose a motif and colors you like.

Apply the Patch to a garment or other object of your choice! If you like, you can apply the Patch with glue rather than sewing it in place.


INSTRUCTIONS

Work in St st (k on RS and p on WS), until piece measures about 15 in.

(38 cm).Bind off.

Weave in ends.



FeltingWash piece by machine on a hot wash/cold rinse cycle with detergent and several pieces of clothing to agitate.

Pull into shape, then allow piece to air dry thoroughly.

(19 x 28 cm) rectangle from felted piece.

(9 cm) along each 7 1/2 in.

(19 cm) side.

Mark 3 1/4 in.

98 cm) down from each corner on each 11 in.

(28 cm) side.

Draw a straight line to connect marks at each corner to create an octagon.Cut along marked lines to make Patch.



Embroidery The next step is to embroider the Patch.

1.

The design is meant to encourage creativity allowing you to tell 'your' story.

Choose desired motif from design motif patterns - L30043 - Friends and Family L30044 - Nature L30045 - Just for Fun L30046 - Letters L30047 - Numbers L30052 - Animals Using a copier or working freehand, change the size of the motif to be about 6 x 9 1/2 in.

(15 x 24 cm).

2.

Trace motif onto tissue paper or tear away stabilizer, then cut it out leaving a border outside the traced lines.

With sewing needle and thread, baste this piece of tissue paper onto the Patch.

Be sure to keep your basting stitches away from the traced lines of the motif.

3.

Using embroidery stitches as desired, and colors from the B yarn pack as desired, embroider motif onto the Patch.

We used simple embroidery stitches – French knots, back stitch, straight stitch and stem stitch.

4.

Clip the basting threads.

If you used tissue paper, dampen the tissue lightly then carefully remove the paper, leaving your embroidery stitches intact.

5.

To remove stabilizer, follow the package directions.6.

With embroidery needle and B yarn color as desired, work blanket st around the outside edge of Patch.



FINISHING Center Patch on the back of the jacket (or on any other piece as desired) and pin into place.

Working behind the blanket stitches, and using sewing needle and thread, sew Patch in place.

If you prefer, use fabric glue to attach the Patch.
