I love the innovative products Sulky offers that make even the most intricate projects manageable. You don’t have to own embroidery machines or spend hours hand stitching to get this look. Below I show you how to create your own designed patches to add to denim or anything you’d like and even how to embroider custom designs directly onto your project using a basic sewing machine.
