Sometimes I’ll see the perfect cardigan or bathrobe in the shops, but know it is a bit blah. There is always custom embroidery or sewing lace or ribbon to customize a simple piece of clothing or fabric, but one of my favorites is even easier than that – iron-on patches!
The two greatest successes I’ve had with iron-on patches were on a plush bathrobe and a zip-up hoodie. The former was tricky since the robe’s fabric was synthetic and I was worried about melting the robe with the iron so for that one I sewed it on completely without help from heat. The hoodie was easier so I embroidered swirly sparks around the patch for a bit of added fun.
This is what they ended up looking like.
Have you done this yourself? I’d love to know what made it work well for you.
