You can hoop Patch Material without any stabilizer/backing/topping.
However, this can sometimes lead to the material moving within the hoop. Or you can attach our newest patch product, called HeatSPUN, to the backside of the PatchMat with your heat-press, then hoop.
Adding the HeatSPUN glue keeps the patch material from moving and sliding within the hoop. This HeatSPUN glue will become your stabilizer when you use the PatchMat material.
ALWAYS sew out more than what you need for mistakes.
Keeping all patches together if sewn out as a group.
Attach Patch Material to the HeatSEAL
Removing excess patch/seal material, leaving a quarter to half an inch of material surrounding satin stitch border.
With the universal tip for 10-15 minutes – use safety stand.
Heat the patch/badge briefly on top-side of the garment for proper placement than to turn garment inside-out and apply heat to the back-side of the patch so heat is directly applied to HeatSEAL side of patch/badge
PRO-TIP: Our Patch Borders CDs are not just simple satin stitched designs. These designs have all been specifically digitized to make cutting out patches easy. They are absolutely a time saver!
Finished Patch/Badge can be applied directly to garment with heat-press, hand iron or sewn on. If you choose to sew-on, you could omit the step where you add the
HeatSEAL glue after the sew out. If using heat-press, use 320-330 degrees for 10-12 seconds, then turn garment over and press from the back-side for 15-20 seconds more.
If using a hand iron, use setting between Wool and Cotton, no steam. Use same dwell times. You’re done!
