Custom Chain Stitched Heart Patch
These decorative heart iron-on patches are ready to be stitched with your name, nickname, title, rank, or maybe just with a message to the world.
We do the chain stitching in our studio using a hand cranked chain stitch machine (more info below). Lettering will be done in cursive and have a charming handmade quality (ie. no 2 letters will be perfectly the same). Name will be capitalized.
1-2 words (9 characters max, including spaces) and you choose the thread colour :)
Felt iron-on patch measures 4" x 3.5"
Chain stitching can be traced back to 1100 BC in China but machine chain stitch has been more recently used in the last 100 years for work wear, uniforms, western wear and embellishing clothing and fabrics. The direction of the needle is controlled by a hand cranked knob under the sewing table, so each letter is created by the machine operator (aka us!)
