How to sew Totenkopf on cap?

Post by JMDcpn » 25 May 2019 18:27

So I've been browsing the web on how to sew on the Totenkopf skull and so far I couldn't see any guides, so just to make sure, do I do it the same way as with the eagle (Leave 5-8mm and then fold, iron, then sew) or just cut the edge and sew it that way? Thanks.

Trim off most of the excess material from the "roll", leaving enough to fold under as you sew it on, this will give the insignia a puffy effect... Of course, normally these would be machine sewn on.

Best I can do for you.
