Sewing a Patch in Hard-to-reach Places
Remove the majority of the strings. Cut a piece of double-sided adhesive interfacing just smaller than your patch size. Iron on high heat, no steam required. Move the iron slowly over the patch, applying the full heat to all areas. Twenty seconds should be enough.
Can you sew patches on with a sewing machine?
If your machine has a top and bottom thread, match the top thread to the edge of the patch where you’re sewing, and the bottom thread to the back of the material.
Is it better to sew or iron on a patch?
Sew on patches are also great because they give the garment on which the patch is attached more flexibility. For example, if you don’t want your patch to be stiff, you can have the iron on backing removed and the patch can flow a little with the fabric once it’s sewn on.
How do you put patches on without sewing?
Even if the patch isn’t iron-on, you might be able to attach it to your jacket without sewing if you use fabric glue. Most fabric glue is a simple application; apply it to the back of the patch and then stick it to the jacket.
What should I put patches on?
Patches can be worn on just about anything, including jeans, jackets, T-shirts, sweatshirts, sneakers, bags, and even phone cases, and they can make you look anything from stylish and elegant to rebellious and bold!
