Embroidery patches have taken the concept of embroidery on a whole new level and have become more and more popular in recent times. More and more people are taking the opportunity to use this extremely inexpensive medium to give their pieces a fashion-focused look. Embroidery patches allow you to show your creativity and enhance your looks and brand value with this innovative craft.
Some of the types of embroidery patches differ in the way their borders are created. The most common type of border that is stitched on the embroidered patches is the over-edge stitch or merrowed edge.
The machinery supplied by Merrow Machines generally applied this, hence the common name. Such patches have borders embroidered in a particular way to create more reliability and uniqueness.
Why Go For Merrowed Edge Patches?
Such patches have an overlock sewing border. In the first step, the patch is embroidered and cut. Overlocked stitches, then cover the edge. These stitches run from the front to the back of the patch, passing over the edge.
Patches that are not 100% embroidered are best suited for Merrowed edges. Covering the patch border with an overlock stitch adds weight and durability to the patches. It creates a clean edge that helps in eliminating the possibility of edges getting ragged & frayed.
What Are Merrowed Border Patches Best For?
Here's an interesting fact to begin with. Most of the patches used on Apollo missions, starting with Apollo 1 in 1967, had merrowed edges. Another everyday use is the name tag patches. Merrowed border patches are best for long-term use as they will not fray and shred easily and can be sewn on most items, like wearables.
