Tips for Creating Patches on Garmeo

Choosing a Patch Shape

Garmeo has four preset patch shapes for you to choose from: square, oval, circle and rectangle. When you embroider a patch, your design will be embroidered within the patch margins you select.

Choosing a Border Color

Patches are sewn onto clothing with a satin stitch embroidery border. That means, the border color will be the color of the thread that will be stitched on to the rest of the garment. If you want the border to blend into your garment, choose a similar color to the garment. If you want the border to stand out from your garment, choose a color that will pop on your garment. If you want the border in the same color as the background, choose the same color as your background.

Choosing a Base Color

Your base color will be the background color of your patch. If you want the background color of your patch to blend into your garment, choose the same color thread as your fabric. If you want the background color of your patch to stand out from your garment, choose a color that will pop on your garment.

The Difference Between Patches and Appliqué

The background of Garmeo’s patches are created entirely with thread. If you want a fabric background, choose appliqué.
