How to apply your Hometown Hero iron-on patch:

1. Heat up your iron. You want your iron to be on its highest heat setting in order for the patch to properly adhere to the clothing. Pro tip: If you don’t have an iron, you can use a hair straightener in a pinch!

2. Plan your design. Layout your piece of clothing on the ironing board and place the patch in the spot where you want to adhere it. The adhesive side (i.e., the side without the design) should be flat against the fabric. If you’re ironing it on shoes or a hat—or other things that don’t lie flat—stuff the insides with towels. (This way, when you press on the patch with a flat iron, it is as close to the fabric as possible and doesn’t shift around.)

3. Place a thin cloth over the front of the patch. This will act as a barrier between your patch and the iron to protect the fabric of your clothing from the heat. You can use a pressing cloth for this.

4. Iron-on that patch. Place the iron over the patch and cloth and hold it there for 30- 40 seconds. Now check to see if the glue has set to the material. You might have to do this step again if the glue hasn’t melted.

5. Flip and repeat steps 3 and 4. Once the patch is fixed to your clothing, turn it inside out and lay it flat on the ironing board again. Place your pressing cloth or pillowcase over the backside of the patch and repeat step 4. If you’re ironing them on something that’s difficult to flip inside out (e.g., the front of a sneaker), apply the iron directly on the patch for a second round.

6. If this garment is laundered a lot you will need to sew down the edges to make sure it will last as long as you have the garment.

7. Let it cool, and you’re done!
