How to Apply Iron on Jean Patches

Patches Applied to the Backside of Jeans

Application Instruction for patching worn areas or tears:
1. Preheat your iron for 2-3 minutes on the highest setting without steam

2. Begin by determining the areas that you would like to repair.  If you are repairing a hole you will see the adhesive through the hole and it may be better to use our traditional patch that goes on the outside of the jeans.

4. Measure the tear that you are trying to fix.  Take a piece of denim backing patch (these patches are different because the adhesive is on the top side of the jean material and the cotton side is exposed to provide additional comfort).  Cut the backing patch about an inch wider than the tear on all sides.

5. With the jeans facing up (like you see them when you are wearing them), place the patch through the tear.  Make sure the patch is centered within the tear.

6. Line-up the tear so that the jeans look straight.

7. Begin ironing the top side of the jeans - first the top of the tear and then the bottom to create the look you are going for. (approximately 1 minute)

8. Now that the patch is temporarily in place, turn the jeans inside out (be careful because the jeans will now be very hot!) Finish by ironing the backside of the jeans according to the ironing instructions provided with the product depending on size.

9. While ironing applying pressure with the tip of the iron to the patch.

9. Turn the jeans so the front side is facing you and trim any excess treads and now your jeans are repaired!

Patches Applied to the Front of Jeans (Traditional Patches)

Application Instruction for patching worn areas or tears:

1. Preheat your iron for 2-3 minutes on the Highest heat setting without steam

2. Begin by determining the areas that you would like to repair. 

3. Take a piece of scrap cloth and put inside jeans to prevent patch from sticking to the inside of the jeans.

4. Measure the tear that you are trying to fix.  Cut the backing patch about an inch wider than the tear on all sides.

5. Pre-iron the area where the patch will be stuck.

6. Iron the top of the patch slowly and gradually increase pressure.  Start on one side of the patch and then move on to other areas.  Ironing times are provided with each patch.

6. Now turn the jeans inside out and iron the inside of the jeans.

7. Wait for the jeans to cool before wearing.

8. If after the first couple of washes the patch lifts, re-iron both sides with high heat and pressure from the tip of the iron.  Sometimes the patches will lift a little at first because of different rates of shrinking.
