A link to watch the video > http://www.wikihow.com/Iron-on-a-Patch PART1 Preparing to iron on a patch 1. Figure out what type of patch you have. - Our patches come with glue on the back. 2. Examine the fabric of your clothing or accessory. - Fabrics like denim & cotton provide the best base for iron-on patches. - As a general rule the fabric you choose should be at least as heavy as the patch. - Look at the fabric care label to see whether it can be ironed (if not, there will be a crossed-out icon of an iron). If there's no label, try to figure out what material it's made of. - Be very careful with polyester fabrics, since applying the high heat necessary for ironing on patches can burn the fabric or cause it to get discolored. - Silk & other delicate fabrics are not good candidates for patches. 3. Think about design & placement. - Before you heat up the iron, lay out your jacket, sash or backpack & decided where exactly you want the patch to be placed. - If this is the only patch you intend to iron on this piece, put it in a tastefully prominent position. Make the placement look intentional. - If you're planning on ironing on more patches, like you would for a girl scout's sash or any other type of collection, plan ahead to make sure there will be room for additional patches. PART2 Iron on a patch 1. Lay the base item on a flat, heat-resistant surface. - An ironing board is useful, but if you don't have one, you may also lay your item across a doubled-up bath towel on a sturdy table. - To ensure the item will provide a good surface for the patch, iron it first. - If it's a backpack or another item that's difficult to iron, do your best to arrange it so that the part of the fabric that will be receiving the patch is flat against a hard surface. 2.Place the patch in the position you chose. The adhesive side should be flat against the base fabric. Make sure that the patch isn't crooked. - On embroidered patches, the adhesive side is the underside. 3. Heat up an iron. - Turn it to the hottest setting your fabric can tolerate. - Make sure the "steam" option is turned off, & that your iron isn't full of water. 4. Place a thin towel over the patch. - Take care not to disturb the position of the patch. The towel will protect the patch itself & the surrounding fabric. 5. Position the heated iron over the patch & press down. - Hold the iron there for about 15 seconds. Apply as much pressure as you can by pressing down firmly. 6. Remove the iron & allow the patch to to cool. - Lift the towel & check to see whether the patch is fixed on securely by gently rubbing at the edge with a finger, trying to lift it. - If it lifts up a bit, replace the towel & press it with the iron again for 10 seconds.
