Oh shit Strike Gently is great, I just won a ton of shit from them in an insta giveaway lmao.
look up Brothers Digital Image Embroidery Machines
they're about $300
you upload any image, and it'll sew it THICK onto your iron-on material, then you cut it out
Get those regular size printer sheet (that are white stickers), print whatever on it, use pic related knife to get rid of the white/black colors depending on what you're aiming for. Take it off the sticky paper sheet and put it on a piece of fabric (usually go for either black or white). Use acrylic to paint on it (maybe 2-3 times, let it dry and get rid of the sticker, although the sticker can get stucked to the fabric so do it slowly)
it should look something like this before applying the paint.Try not using or drawing something with too many details.
W2C a pill patch that's not the Akira colorway?
I can only find akira ones and McDonalds red/yellow colored one on Etsy.
I just got a set of needles (didn't know which one to get so that set has a variety) and some thread
And the patches
I had a button machine for five years
Just sold it to a friend for 40 bucks, which, if you know the value, is practically giving away the thing
Reason: I never used it after starting to make money cuz it was too fucking time consuming and customers outside of my circle of friends didn't know how much bullshit went into it all
I imagine the same thing would happen with an embroidery business
saw this one a few months ago on a patch thread; just picked it up
I might seam rip a supreme 5 panel and sew this on for shits
