How do I make a patch without an embroidery machine?

What fabric do you use for embroidery patches?

Whether the need is for an insignia or just for fun, patches are a quick and easy way to attach embroidery to any surface. The best and most common base fabric for patches is felt or twill, but any sturdy fabric with work when paired with a quality fusible thermal stabilizer.

How do you make a homemade eye patch?

You will need:

  1. Cut an 8cm strip of tape.
  2. Cut a smaller piece of tape (or soft cloth) 3cm in width. Double this strip of tape back on itself so the sticky sides are together.
  3. Place the tape or cloth in the centre of the large strip.
  4. Round off the edges and corners and apply to appropriate eye as directed.
