Your shading is lovely... What did you embroider on, is it a piece of felt, or what type of fabric?

I've posted a question regarding patches in the Needlework discussion board, and now that I've seen your patches, perhaps you can help me out...

Here's my question:

Please post an answer for me!

Your patches are so nicely done, and I don't want to mess mine up, how are you attaching them?  Are you using Solvy?  Just stitching?  How are you making the borders?

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

I just embroidered it on a spare bit of fabric, from another sewing project. I think it was just a medium weight cotton blend.

I just attached it with a blanket stitch around the edge. That's all. I cut the fabric out a bit bigger than I wanted, ironed it down really crisp, and ran a blanket stitch around the edge. Easy as can be.

Many thanks for your reply... I did the same thing that you have suggested here, because my guy friend says he wants to be able to remove the patch and put it on other clothing... he's so happy that I've done a Scottish flag and a quote from one of his favorite songs on a pair of shorts for him... I just ironed it nice and flat and blanket stitched them on... thanx so much for your input!
