How to Attach Patches

Methods vary :

You can start our safety pinning your patches to try out placements { be careful as pins have a tendency to snag and open }

Once you have your placement preferences sorted, you can sew your patches on, or take them to you local fabric worker who can sew them on for you!

Options to consider : sewing patches on with the upper side open so that they turn into pockets { put backings on delicate fabric patches or embroidery } You can also add a snap or button / hole for greater security of belongings.

You may also explore ironing patches on with a glue medium, although sewing them on will be more durable and less likely to peel off.

If you like to frequently change the placement or patches you wear, consider backing them with Velcro or buttons & snaps in each corner.
