Embroidery Patch Design Files

Clean, crisp merrowed edges are the trademark of professional-looking embroidery patches. Traditionally, these edges are created using a “merrow machine” which most embroiderers don’t own.

So, to ensure you get the best results possible using only your embroidery machine, John Deer has created some specially digitized embroidery design files that replicate the beautiful “Fan and Lock” attributes merrow machines are famous for.

These expertly digitized embroidery designs allow you to insert your designs or lettering into the patch outlines, and at the press of a button, easily create custom patches with any materials of your choice!

What Are In-the-Hoop Project Embroidery Designs?

Instead of the standard process of embroidering a flat embroidery design onto a piece of fabric or a garment, in-the-hoop projects allow you to create unique 3D projects using your embroidery machine. Normally you would embroidery a design onto something, but with in-the-hoop projects, you are actually making the pocket, bookmark, face mask, etc right there on your machine! This allows you to create incredibly unique and handy projects that showcase your creative side.
