Embroidered Patch Border Styles

An important part of every embroidered patch and woven patch order is the edge selection. Finished edges keep patches from unraveling and becoming unsightly. A Merrowed Edge is essentially a sewn border. It is created using an overlock stitch, which yields a uniform edge and prevents fraying. A Hot Cut Edge is die cut. Heated scissors help create this type of edge. Every patch must have an edge in order to stay intact. Hot Cut Edges are used for more extreme shapes, while Merrow Edges create a rounded appearance.

If you need assistance choosing between a Merrowed Edge and a Hot Cut Edge, contact a Patch Depot representative right away!
