How To Apply Iron On Patches
Apr 03, 2018

Iron on and stick on embroidered and fabric patches, as well as hot fix iron on appliqués offer hundreds of decorating possibilities! You can use them for clothing, scrap booking, quilting, crafting, and home decoration. They can be added to just about anything that can take heat from an iron (including paper) or for which there is a glue available. The options are just about endless. However, with today's fantastic and unusual fibers and materials, making the correct choice can be challenging. Sometimes you have to be willing to do a bit of experimenting unless you are just doing something simple like adding a patch to a simple t-shirt or a pair of jeans.

If you have never ironed on an embroidered iron on or hot fix patch you will want to test the process first. Purchase an inexpensive patch to try out on a "soon to be discarded garment or fabric scrap. That way you will get a good feel for the process. It is not difficult, but better to approach your $100 blouse with confidence. With hot fix you will need some patience and want to be sure you know what technique works best with the material and style patch you are using.

Remember, you can always revert to a bit of glue or hand sewing to keep your patch secure. This is especially true if you want to ensure "years to come permanency." If you are making an heirloom quilt, take the time to first iron on your patches to get them positioned properly. Then sew them into place. They do not need to be machine stitched - just a few well-placed stitches around the edges and on any fragile "points" will go a long way to ensure your creation with withstand a lifetime of wear and laundering.
