How to make a Union Jack Badge

 These are instructions about how to make up a badge from our Mini Union Jack Project on our web site…
First stitch up the project on 7 count tapestry using a single strand of Tapestry Yarn (4 ply) in the colours of your choice, in counted cross stitch.  We then added 2 further outline rows of single colour stitching – for an old school look… then follow the pics as shown.

cut round the edge of the design leaving 1 cm gap around the edge

fold in the corners toward the back – pressing with an iron if you like

corners folded in (back/wrong side view)

Then fold all the sides to the back – being careful to roll in the edges so you see no canvas.

Press flat with an iron. Here is the main part of the badge.

Place on a piece of felt and cut round to size

Pin the front to the back

Using slip stitch and 2 strands of stranded cotton, sew round the edge

Add a little embellishment or simple a pin … and voila!
