What better way to get a little extra personality to your favorite hat, backpack, or denim jacket by adding a patch. My husband, Randall, and I really love sewing or ironing on a patch to help add something special to our things. It only takes about an hour depending on the size of your patch if you are sewing it on.
It's not hard to sew and it will stay in place much longer than if you iron it. Just do a basic stitch and stay on the inside of the outer most finished stitching of the patch with the same color thread. That way you can barely tell it was sewn on. It can be tough getting the needle through the material of the item and the patch, so I do recommend using a thimble to help you push it through. Your fingers will get a little sore. But, it's worth it! Right? Scroll through to see ways to use a patch. All items linked below.
It always feels like the biggest accomplishment even though it is the simplest sewing job!
Love. Mucho Mucho.
