In honor of Father’s Day coming up, Emily made a My Hero embroidered felt patch that you can recreate using our template and tutorial below. Featuring her own illustrations, this patch also fits in perfectly with our mythological theme this month. 

When you’re ready to start crafting, just check out our supplies list below. You can find everything we used in our online craft shop, or you’re always welcome to use what you have on hand.

DIY embroidery felt hero patch

For your super hero dad or grad

Although Emily created this My Hero embroidered felt patch for Father’s Day, we think it would also make a cute gift for your grad — or anyone else you want to acknowledge. As with any patch, you can add it to whatever you like! Some fun ideas if you need them are a denim jacket, pencil case, or a backpack.

Of course you can also personalize your patch by choosing your own felt color and embroidery floss. We’d love to see what you do with this patch, so be sure to share photos with us! As always you can post pictures to our Facebook page for members, by using the hashtag #MadeWithLia on Instagram, or emailing us at
