Similarly, you may ask, what is a hot cut border?
Merrow borders are most commonly found on shapes such as circles, ovals and squares. Merrow borders are applied after the design is stitched onto your patches. A Hot Cut border is a thinner, flatter border that is cut out using a hot knife that seals the outer edge of your patch, keeping the thread from fraying.
Secondly, how do you finish a patch?
- Step 1: Back the Patch With Cotton. So you've already finished the embroidery part.
- Step 2: Cut. After you're done sewing the patch to the backing, cut around the stitching.
- Step 3: Turn. Turn the patch right-side out now.
- Step 4: Buttonhole Stitch.
- Step 5: Finished.

A Merrowed Edge is essentially a sewn border. It is created using an overlock stitch, which yields a uniform edge and prevents fraying. A Hot Cut Edge is die cut.
