Attaching the Iron-on Patch

Some patches are retailed with an iron-on backing already attached. Some are just applied without iron on the back. This is where Steam-A-Seam keeps the day. This stuff is surprising and not only is it incredibly ordinary to implement, but it also has a better permanent hold than iron-on ones. And yes, it is machine washable after it is fused onto the fabric! It usually comes in 9×12″ size sheets but some fabric stores might sell them by the yard too. The sticky, fusible sheet will come sandwiched between two sheets of paper. The white top paper can be easily removed and the gridded bottom one will require to be peeled off once your appliqué is attached. Primary, remove the top paper and stick the bottom of your appliqué to the Steam-A-Seam. Cut around it roughly. Sandwich it by placing a plain piece of paper under the appliqué and another on top. This is for preventing the fusible glue from melting all over your ironing board and your iron from messing up.

Step 1

Keep the iron on the patch where you desire it to be. Next set the iron temperature to that of cotton fabric.

Step 2

Spray some drops of water on the back of the patch. Keep pieces of cotton pressing cloth above the iron on the patch this is to protect it from getting damaged because of the heat.

Step 3

Iron for around 20-30 seconds. Use the hot iron to press consistently. Make sure the heat settings of your iron are for cotton cloth. Be careful not to use the iron-on patches on nylon fabrics, waterproof rainwear, leather, and elastic fabrics.

The trick to pulling off the statement-patched jacket is pairing it with neutral solid colors. Now that you have numerous ideas for styling the jacket with different patches, it’s time to experiment with them, the different and unique, and the better.
