How To Use Iron-On Patches
WARNING: Children should not iron on the patches; use the iron only with an adult present.
What you'll need:
- Iron and ironing board
- Lining to protect the patch while ironing; a towel or sheet of wax/baking paper
- Clothing, bag, or hat you want to apply patches to
- Remove the sticker on the back (glue side)
- Warm up the iron. The iron must be hot enough to melt the glue
- For best results, use the iron to heat the area where you are going to place the patch to remove any wrinkles and to make it flat and warm
- Position the patch where you want it to permanently be with the glue side against the fabric
- To prevent burning of the fabric or patch, use a towel or a sheet of wax/baking paper to get better adhesion
- Press the iron firmly to the patch. Hold for 10 seconds as a test. Be careful and don't burn or melt the fabric
- Let the patch set for a few minutes until it is cool before you handle it so the glue can dry
Patches can be ironed on most fabrics. The only problem you might experience is if you have a textured fabric that the glue can't adhere to. In those cases or if you don't want them to be permanent, you can put a few stitches in each one
IMPORTANT: Don't wash or dry the fabric that has patches glued onto it using extreme heat -- hot water or an extremely hot dryer can soften the glue and cause the patches to come off. Wash on a cool setting, and dry on a medium or low setting.
Is it better to sew or iron on a patch?
Iron-on patches can be sewn on any fabric. Sewing on the patch is highly recommended if you are attaching patches to fabrics which are heat sensitive or if you will be laundering them frequently.
