      It's usualy cotton Twill. But this is not water proof It will get wet. Are you going to do your own embroidery?

        Hi Goldy1,
        Im just looking for the fabric as i have a friend who will stitch the edges in silver thread, then im going to print the logo we need on to the fabric.and the badges will be worn on our jacket,so i would need this fabric to be waterproof.
        Iam out of work at the moment and would like to get into this line of work making cloth badges, but reading about it on the net it sems very difficult to learn.
        Cheers

            I have worked in a printing firm in the past and I would sugest you print the patches first it's easier that way and if you make a smudge you haven't wasted the time stiching it.
            You could use a Cotton twill for a coat patch as this is used on them already or you could try other coat fabric. It would be the Ink that needed to be waterproof or at least heat fixed.
