Make your own iron-on patches with fusible web, a flat, double-sided, heat-activated glue for fabric.
Steam-A-Seam 2 Lite is my favourite fusible web because it’s sticky on both sides (which makes positioning easier) and the backing papers peel away easily. Lightweight fusible web is thinner than traditional readymade iron-patches, so it won’t make your clothes as stiff.
Each pack contains five sheets of fusible web measuring 23 x 30.5cm (9 x 12 inches).
DIY iron-on patches are my favourite way to patch T-shirts. Fusible web is not recommended for delicate fabrics, linen, or sturdy fabrics like denim that would become too stiff.
Sewing of fusible-web patches is recommended but not required to secure patch edges. Non-sewn strength will vary depending on fabric type and the wash and wear of your garment.
