    Final Product: What You Will Create
     


    Step 1:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Print this pattern. Then cut out the center of the eye patch. You will use it as a guide after you have embroidered the design. Patch size when printed should be 3" wide x 2 7/16" high or 76mm x 62mm.


    Step 2:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    First hoop one piece of black fabric and cut away backing in your hoop. Then embroider the design of your choice.


    Step 3:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Cut away the backing close to the design as shown in the small square picture.


    Step 4:

    Now take the Eye Patch pattern that you have printed previously and place it over the back of the embroidered fabric. Draw around the patch pattern with the fabric pencil or marker.

    (Placing the paper right side up will make the patch for the left eye.)


    Step 5:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Then on the front of the embroidered fabric you will draw the same patch pattern. This time flip the paper over and draw the outline. Then mark an X on each seide where you would like to place the elastic band. At the top draw two lines about an 1 1/2" apart. This area will be left open when you sew the design together.


    Step 6:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Pin each and of the elastic bandover the X-s. Then pin the rest above and between the two lines at the top.


    Step 7:

    Place the embroidered fabric face to face with the second piece of black fabric.


    Step 8:

    Now sew along the line, do not sew between the two lines on the top as this is where you will turn the patch right side out. Re-enforce both sides of the opening and where the elastic bands are.


    Step 9:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Cut the excess fabric off about 1/4" away from where you have sewn. When you get to the top cut each layer of fabric separately so you do not cut the elastic.


    Step 10:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Turn the patch inside out. Use your finger to form the patch shape. At the top where it is open fold in the excess fabric and hand stitch closed.
