Help – need sewing instr. for patches
I am in dire need of some instructions for sewing an embroidered patch onto leather apparel. Please let me know what stitch I should be using and possibly instructions for performing the stitch.
Thank you very much,
I would use a glue recommended for use on leather-just a dab in the middle of the patch to hold it in place. When its dry, use a leather needle for your machine and a straight stitch of 3-4 in length (9-10 st. per inch on older models). Holes in leather are permanent so you don't want them too close together. i had a former Air Force pilot as a customer before he moved and used to put them on his flight jacket which was leather and this worked the best for me.
