Tackle twill (sew on numbers, sew on lettering) is a form of appliqué. Although most commonly seen in combination with embroidery and embroidered patches on sports team uniforms and jerseys (consisting of the team logo, player’s name, and number), it is also used to customize hoodies, sweatshirts, tote bags, varsity jackets and cheerleading uniforms.
My friends at Crooked Brook have many tackle twill numbers in various fonts, colors and sizes that were extras, mistakes or have slight imperfections and will randomly choose two tackle twill numbers as giveaways.
These are perfect for customizing one of the kids hoodies or sweatshirts, and can be sewn onto a garment with a zigzag, satin or double running stitch. You can turn your little sports fan’s plain sweatshirt into a “jersey” just like the pros wear.
Today’s tackle twill give away is two, Varsity font, 7”, white on black, numbers, value…$17.00. Winner can request the 2 numbers that they want, provided Crooked Brook has them, if not, they will have to choose from what is available.
