A basic chenille patch consists of 4 different components, which include the chenille, attaching chain, top felt and bottom felt. The chenille is actually the name of the yarn that is used to create the “puffy” 3D effect. This would be the inner white portion on the FFA patch below. The attaching chain is used to attached both layers of felt together. The inner red outline in the picture below would be the attaching chain. The felt layers are denser and help to make the patch less flimsy. Most patches have two layers of felt: the top and the bottom. In the picture below, the white felt would be the top felt and the red would be the bottom felt.
When designing your order, you can change all of these different components to find the design that works best for you.
