How to Create an Embroidered Patch Design in Illustrator

In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial I’m going to take you through the process of creating a colourful embroidered patch, based on the kinds of designs associated with National Parks. The artwork will incorporate a landscape scene at sunset, which helps to keep the design simple with a silhouette graphic and a warm colour palette. Stick around until the end of this tutorial to discover an easy way to make your digital design look real with stitching and embroidery effects.

  1. Thanks for the tutorial. Small point: A ‘Titling’ weight of a typeface is designed for making titles… – and pronounced title-ing, not tittling!

    • Haha what an idiot! I’ve always read it as “Tilting” Gothic so I had to do a double-take when I realised it was “Titling”. The word Title never even occurred to me!
