I got this embroidery machine about a year and a half ago.
I love it!
You sandwich your fabric...canvas, twill or my favorite, felt,
and tear away stabilizer into the frame...then program the patch and it will stitch away!
I imported a picture of the Hogwarts house crests and had it embroider them.
There's even a needle threader on the machine, so no hard work there!
Then I use fray check all around the edge of the embroidered patch,
let it dry and then cut it out!
Not as high quality as store bought variety, but still perfect for
Harry Potter costumes or party favors!
No fraying fabric--means no fray check needed!
They look AMAZING!
If you are outlining the patch in black, use a black backing!
It makes it much more crisp...if you are outlining in white, go with white backing!
Harry Potter Halloween Party back in October and I wanted to
sort all the guests into houses with a sorting hat.
A giant house patch for each person (about 30) was too much work for me!
I did mini house logo's for each house!
Then I put them in the sorting hat and everyone picked a patch...perfect
way to sort into houses without a lot of quizzes and personality matching!
Booyah! Great party favor!
Would you ever consider it?
What would you make with it?
