Title: How to put custom patches on the caps?

How to put custom patches on the
caps? The procedure to apply
embroidered patches to your hats is simple. There
are three different ways you can achieve this
  • Gluing
  • Hot ironing
  • Sewing

Every technique is progressively better than the
one preceding in terms of toughness and
durability. Let's check each of these methods of
applying leathers on the caps in detail
below. Gluing Gluing is one of the easiest ways
out of three. You can obtain glue or fabric glue
from a shop or online stores and dribble a layer
of glue onto the backside of
custom hats or custom leather patches. Place them
on your custom hats and hold them for 30 seconds
or more. It is enticing to use glue or adhesives
to put leathers on the caps as it saves a lot of
time and effort. Regrettably, being fast, comes
at a price. When you use adhesives like glue or
hot glue can weaken your hat's fabric, which will
eventually rip apart. You may think of using
fabric glue, but they may not work on every piece
of fabric, especially slick ones. The glue may
melt away after a couple of washes, so your
patch may fall from your hat. So, using glue may
not be a permanent solution. Hot ironing Ironing
on a patch is not a complex task either, but it
is harder and consumes more time than using
glue. When you iron on custom leather patches for
jackets or custom leather patches for jeans, the
chances of patch standing the test of time is
way higher. But let me warn you that you will
have to make sure that the fabric of your hat
does not get damaged by heat or doesn't have
elasticity. Now, let's proceed to know how you
iron on custom patches on custom hats.
  • Firstly, make sure that your hat is placed on a
    flat and heat-resistant surface.
  • Then, put your patch on the desired spot and heat
    the iron to its highest setting.
  • Make sure that you turn off the steam setting.
    After that, place a thin towel over the custom
    leather patches or custom patches for protection,
    and be careful you do not move the patch from
    the position you set earlier.
  • When iron is hot enough, you can press it firmly
    on the patch for 10 to 15 seconds.

  • At last, remove iron and towel to allow the patch
    to cool off before use.

This method is also not foolproof as the patch
will come off if the hat is frequently washed.
You can wash the hat using cool water, but do not
wash it more than necessary. If you want to wash
it in the washing machine then, be sure to turn
your hat inside out before you start the
machine. Sewing Out of these three methods,
sewing is the most conserving and everlasting
solution to put customized patches on your hats.
There are two ways to sew a patch for a hat.
  • Hand sew
  • Sewing machine

Before starting sewing, you have to put your
patch at a preferred position and then place pins
at any part of your patch that won't get in your
way while sewing. You can also use small amounts
of washable adhesive to hold your patch. After
settling your patch, turn your hat inside out
and then choose one of the two sewing methods
mentioned above. If you choose to sew with your
hands, use heavy needles as the fabric of hats is
usually dense and thick. Work your way around
the patch and continue until you reach that
point, where you tie the thread to finish it
properly. While sewing with a sewing machine,
set it to a zigzag setting, which is dedicated to
sewing embroidered patches. Use the narrowest
zigzag possible as you have to make sure that
stitches are not visible. Now, do the same as the
hand-sewing method. Sew
around the edges of the patch until you reach the
starting point, and then your job is done.
