Tutorial: Applique / Team Fortress patches by freltana Tutorial: Applique / Team Fortress patches by freltana
So we're doing a group cosplay of Team Fortress and I thought I'd make a tutorial of how I made my patches for the others in the group. I considered having our patches embroidered, but this looks nice enough that I'm happy with it :)

Important note: this is a technique that's really super awesome and can be used for any kind of patch, or really anywhere where you wanna attach a fabric design to a different fabric. I've used applique to make Darren's Akatsuki cloak, and for many other things. Deviantart has a bunch of good tutorials on the subject, that's where I learned about it, so if you wanna know more just do an 'applique' search!

Some tutorial mention using freezer paper or something... I don't think you can get that in SA, so I always go for applique paper (available in fabric/craft sewing shops). It's pretty expensive, but truly worth it!

I'm by no means a pro on the subject, and I encourage you to take what you want from this tutorial and adapt what you learn to suit your own project needs! :D

This is a HUGE help. I've been wanting to know how to do the patches for so long. Now to show it to the other folks in my own TF2 cosplay group.

This is a great tutorial! I'll keep it in my references in case I ever finally do any cosplays... :giggle:
