No need to bother with the hassles of sewing, here are some quick instructions on how to use 1. To iron on the patches, first warm up the iron for 5 minutes (unless it is a rapid heat iron) on a medium (silk/wool) setting (or higher if possible without scorching the fabric). The iron must be hot enough to melt the glue.
2. For best results, use the iron to first heat the place where you are going to place the patch, so it is warm.
3. Then position the patch where you want it to permanently be with the glue side against the fabric.
4. Press the iron firmly to the patch and hold for 10 seconds as a test. It usually takes 20-25 seconds to fully melt the glue, but irons vary, so be careful and don't burn or melt the fabric. If the glue isn't fully melted or if you handle the patch while the patch is still warm, the patch may start to come off the fabric. If this happens, iron it on again.
To prevent burning of the polyester, or patches and to get better adhesion: First, position the patch in the desired location and apply the iron to melt the glue. Then turn the material inside out and iron through the material against the underside of the patch. This allows you to see areas where the glue was not fully contacting with the material, get better heating and overall a better application. The patches should stay on much better. Also washing in delicate, or hand wash and laying flat, or clothes line to dry helps.
You MUST let the Patch set for a few minutes until it is cool before you handle it so the glue can dry.
