How to Sew Patches?

What is the best way to sew patches on?

To sew patches, such as boy scout or girl scouts patches, it is best to sew these by hand. Thread your needle and tie a knot at the end. Bring your needle up through the back side of the material through the edge of your patch and down along the side of the patch. Continue sewing all along the edges of your patch. Tie a knot at the backside of your material when done and cut off excess thread.

To sew a patch on a hole in the knee you can cut a larger size circle or shape from different material enough to cover the hole and sew the same as above.

There are iron on patches as well but to reinforce the patch you may want to hand sew the patch on securely after ironing on.

You can also do an applique patch with the sewing machine for shirts or pants.
