0:05 Intro: Welcome to the Customer Resource Center informational video on chenille patches.
Chenille patches are made of a felt fabric material that serves as the patch's foundation
The signature chenille look has a terry-cloth wooly texture
The patch's finer details are made of traditional polyester thread in a satin stitch pattern.
0:33 Making the patch: Size and Coverage:
Our patch sizes are determined by the length plus height, divided by two.
This patch for example, is 4”
Chenille patches include up to eight thread colors included in the cost of the patch.
Each additional thread color will incur an additional run charge per patch.
A metallic thread option is available for additional cost.
1:04 Border Options:
Chenille patches have only two border options. Satin stitch and hot knife. Merrowed is not available.
Satin stitch is a combination of a merrowed and hot knife border.
Hot knife cut for chenille is used for complex shapes.
1:27 Backing Types:
Chenille patches are available with the following backing options:
Stitch-on ready, also known as sew-on backing, is the most common backing; when using this type of backing, a merrowed border is recommended.
The most common backing is iron-on, also known as heat seal backing. Often used due to ease of application and to make sewing for long-lasting application a breeze.
Stick-on backings are a one-time use, removable adhesive backing. When this option is selected, it essentially turns your patch into a chenille sticker.
Plastic backing is used as a stabilizer to make large patches sturdier when stitching on and prevents a natural curl.
