IRON-ON PATCH INSTRUCTIONS (for iron-on patches only) Cotton & denim fabrics perform best with iron-on patches because they can handle the heat. Fabrics like polyester, nylon, leather & other stretchy fabrics don't hold up well under high heat (which is required to melt the glue on the back of the patch) & may burn or get discolored by a hot iron. We also highly recommend using a thin towel over the patch (in between the patch & iron) to protect the patch threads during the ironing-on process, as some irons can get super hot & can melt the threads (especially metallic thread). We also highly recommend stitching the patch to the garment in a few places (after it has cooled), as to keep corners from pulling off when you go to wash it. (As iron-on will only hold for so long, no matter what the maker may claim.) If you're ever not sure what a fabric is, it's always a safe bet to just stitch the patch on. The bonus is with denim & sewn-on patches, if you change your mind, you can just cut the thread, pull the old patch off & swap it out with a fresh patch! :) As for the iron-on instructions: 1. Lay the base item on a flat, heat-resistant surface. 2. Place the patch in the position you chose 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. 7. Consider sewing around the edges. For a completely secure patch, use a sewing machine or a needle & thread to secure the patch to the fabric. This greatly reduces the chances that the patch will fall off. Choose a thread that matches the patch. Iron On Stitch Embroidered Patch
