Patches are a great way to show off your personality - they can also be used to cover up holes in clothes and accessories. For example, if a particularly favorite dress is accidentally scratched with a small hole and you can't throw it away or continue to wear it because it will make a joke, then you can use patches. This article will introduce you to the preparation work before ironing the patch.

Find all types of patches

Some embroidery patches come with an adhesive backing, while others only have a piece of backing fabric. Check your patches carefully to determine if you need to use other materials. Decorative embroidered fabric patches are usually thicker, stiffer, and have what looks like the plastic adhesive on one side. These patches can be used to cover up torn or faded discolored areas on clothing. Transfer paper patches are patches with the design printed on special paper, which has no gloss on one side. This patch cannot be torn fabric together unless it is used on white fabric, otherwise, it is easy to see through the fabric below. If the patch backing is a layer of fabric, you can use double-sided adhesive lining to stick. Patches that are used to cover holes or stains and can be bonded to the fabric usually come with a paper backing, which should be removed before use. If you can't find a patch you like, consider designing one of your own.

Check the fabric of your clothes or accessories

Fabrics such as denim and cotton are best suited for iron-on patches. Generally, the fabric you choose should be thicker than the patch. Check the fabric's wash label to determine if it is ironable (if not, there will be a crossed-out iron icon on the label). If there is no label, then try to figure out exactly what material it is made of. Be very careful with polyester fabrics, as the high temperatures needed to iron a pvc patch can easily scorch the fabric or cause it to discolor. Silks and other delicate fabrics are not suitable for patching.

Think about the design and layout

Before you heat the iron, lay out your jacket, belt, or backpack and decide exactly where you want the patch to go. If you are only going to iron a patch on this garment, then place it in a distinctive and prominent location. Make it look, designer. If you also plan to iron on several more patches, like a Girl Scout belt or other collectibles, then plan and make sure there is enough space on it. If you use paper patches that can be transferred, remember that letters and other asymmetrical patterns flip when they are printed.
