PRITED PATCH

video
PRINTED PATCH :---Preparation for the printed patch is the same as for

plain patch , after matching the print all round , except that the wrong side of

the patch is placed on the right side of the garment .

Match the pattern by one selvedge side first and pin carefully in position . Then match the

second selvedge side with the print pin carefully in position , fold under the selvedgesides 1/4" .

Match one weft side then the other pinning carefully in position ,


fold under edges 3/8" . All corners must be square . Remove the pins

and carefully pressed in

the folds . Fold the patch in half inch away press the creases firmly . Place wrong side of the

patch on the right side of the garment . Place selvedge threads by

selvedge
threads but matching

the pattern not necessarily keeping by a straight thread . The center of the

patch is placed over

the center of the hole . Pin the two selvedge sides first and then the two

weft sides . Tack close to

the edge starting in the middle of a selvedge side .


Top sew the patch neatly all round , being careful to hold the patch

towards the worker .Do not

work too tightly and carefully flatten each side . Just worked , before

starting the adjecent side

.By holding the patch towards the worker the patch is kept flat .

Finishing the hole :---Turn the wrongside of the work towards the worker

and make diagonal creases as in the plain patch "measure 3/8 " from the

stitches on these diagonal creases . Insert the scissors into the fold and cut

along the diagonal creases into these points , all of which should be straight

by a thread . Fold back these flaps of the hole level with the turnings of the

patch loop stitch the raw edges .
