What you do

// Sew trim to underside of flap by hand or machine (use jean needle).

Using hot iron, press patches into place and let cool. Test to make sure entire patch is secure. Repeat if needed.

If patch has jewels or rhinestones on it, place pressing cloth over patch or iron from the back side.
