This product has opened up so many creative patching and decorating possibilities. It's easy to use, robust, and printable, so I can make my own patches using photos from my garden etc. Just love it.
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.
- Double-sided temporary stick
- Bonds permanently once ironed
- Machine washable and dryable
- Printable and traceable backing papers, for easy design transfer
Made in the U.S.A. and packaged in a zip-lock plastic bag.

This shop is in slow mode so I can do alllll the things – including running this shop and running after two tiny tots – and enjoy my life. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
I'm currently dispatching orders once a week; place your order by 5pm Thursday Melbourne time (AEST) for dispatch by Monday.
(NOTE: I drop off most orders at my local post office on Fridays, but I'm told they don't physically leave the post office and start making their way to you until Monday.)
If you select Express Post at checkout, it will speed up Australia Post's delivery timeframe but won't speed up my process.
After your order has been packed, you will receive an email notification with your Australia Post tracking number, which you can use to check on the delivery status of your order.
Customers in Northcote, Thornbury and nearby suburbs (subject to capacity) can select local delivery at checkout. Local delivery is extra-slow and coincides with my pram-walking/kid-wrangling schedule, up to one week after purchase. ٩(｡•́‿•̀｡)۶
