Step 1: Prepare garment and patch Prepare your garment and the patch by ensuring that both are clean and dust free. This will allow the patch to adhere more securely to the clothing fabric. Step 2: Trim frayed area Trim frayed areas around the hole or worn area with the scissors. Leave a bit of fray around a hole for the patch to adhere to. Tip Use the hottest iron setting for heavy fabrics such as canvas and denim and a lower setting for delicate fabrics. Step 3: Position pillowcase and press garment Position the pillowcase over the area to be patched and iron your garment through the pillowcase. Step 4: Align patch Align the patch with the hole or frayed area, making sure it provides complete coverage. Position the pillowcase over the patch to provide a buffer between the fabric and the iron to prevent scorching. Step 5: Iron patch Iron the patch to your garment securely by pressing down firmly and passing the iron over the area four or five times. Tip Try making your own iron-on patches using fabric and iron-on adhesive tape, which can be purchased at a fabric store. Step 6: Let garment cool Let your garment cool for at least an hour without moving it. Once the glue adheres, the patch will be set. Did You Know? Did you know?
