TIPS FOR The Plastic Film Patch Method: If you are creating a patch using the plastic film method as you can create the emblem entirely with embroidery. With the plastic film method, a full span of non-soluble film is hooped and used as a base material for the patch. Often when working on a non-soluble plastic film, digitizers will create an underlay mesh underneath the background of the main filled area of the patch design. This allows the thread to hold together, stay stable, and have some body in the finished piece. With this kind of execution, one simply hoops the film, runs the background underlay and fill, moves to the central design, and finishes, as always with the border before tearing the patch out of the plastic film. Home and craft embroiderers would recognize the main background underlay as being somewhat similar to the mesh-like support fills used in what are commonly called freestanding lace designs. Like those FSL designs, the thread is meant to stand largely on its own, even though the plastic material is still present in the finished piece. You can opt instead to use applied material with this method as described in the seven original steps, but if you intend to hand-cut material, you will have to be extremely careful not do damage the plastic film.
