How do you put patches on without sewing?

What material can you put patches on?

Can you use fabric glue for patches?

Instead of sewing or ironing patches onto sashes or vests, glue them on! You can get fabric glue at any craft or fabric store. Just spread the glue on the patch, press the patch onto the vest, let it dry, and voila! So easy, and they stay on so much better than when you iron them on.

What material is used for punk patches?

The classic – and the easiest – is to sew the patch with open edges and white thread by hand.

Some punks swear by floss.

Why do iron on patches not work?

Do iron on patches work?
