I have some great ideas for things to embroider on my motorcycle gear, but I really need the gear to remain waterproof.  I can't imagine poking little holes through the fabric will really be great for that.  Grin

Does anyone know whether there's anything I can brush/tape/iron/whatever onto the backside of the gear that would waterproof the embroidery holes? 

I'll probably try an experiment with seam sealers; I'll report back as to how well it works....or not.   Wink

Is it Leather that you want to embroider, or something else?

What about seam sealant that is used to waterproof seams in older tents?

Or, you could make your motifs separately, and make them into iron on patches perhaps?  That is what I did for my daughter's backpack.
