Question by Karen: make a patch from my machine embroidery?
I want to do an embroidery or applique from my embroidery machine, and sell this as a patch. Do I apply the two sided heat transfer before running the design? Do I run the design and then cut out the transfer and apply to the embroidered side? Then the customer peels off the paper and applies to their own item? Please help! Have never done this before.

I’d get the type of fusible web that has two backings, apply the first side AFTER I embroider the design and have the customer peel off the second backing and iron it on. One tip: put the face of the embroidery on a folded terry towel when you iron the fusible on. That will keep the iron from crushing the embroidery.
But be aware that it’s probably a copyright infringement for you to sell a design that was created by anyone else. Unless you had a design that you created digitized it could be problem.
Best of luck.
