How to make a clothing patch - STEP BY STEP

Creating your own patches can be a fun and rewarding activity. Here we show you a step-by-step guide to making patches for clothing:

1.Design your patch:

Draw or print the design you want. Remember that simple designs usually work best.

2.Cut the fabric:

Cut out a piece of fabric that is slightly larger than your design.

3.Apply the iron-on paper:

Place the iron-on paper on the back of the fabric following the manufacturer’s instructions. This will make it easier to apply the patch later.

4.Cut out the design:

With the iron-on paper attached, cut out your design from the fabric.

5.Finish the edge (optional):

If you want a more polished finish, sew around the edge of the patch with thread of the appropriate color.

How to Iron Patches for Clothes - STEP BY STEP

Applying patches to your garments can be easily done with an iron. Here we’ll explain to you how to do it:

  1. Make sure the garment is clean and dry. Place the garment on an ironing board.
  2. Place the patch on the desired location on the garment with the adhesive side facing down.
  3. Place a piece of baking paper over the patch to protect it from direct heat.
  4. Set the iron to a high temperature (no steam) and press firmly on the baking paper for 30-60 seconds.
  5. Allow the patch and garment to cool completely before handling.

If you prefer not to use an iron or need to secure the patch more, fabric patch glues and adhesives are great options:
