If you try to connect to the Cub Scout patches, you may feel that expanding the business is a less time-consuming task. But attaching Cub Scout patches isn’t necessarily discouraging. With some tools and a little time, you can use the patches he gets to complete your child’s scouting uniform.
Some things you should prepare: needle, iron, colored thread, ironing board, thimble, fusible bonding tape, safety pins or straight pins, handkerchief or thin towel, scissors.
Sew on patches
Iron the shirt so you don’t get any wrinkles on it.
Pass a needle with colored threads through a needle that matches the edge of the patch.
Place the shirt on a flat surface and place the patch in place according to the Cub Scout uniform guide. Before starting sewing, secure or direct the patch in place to ensure the shirt remains smooth and wrinkle-free. If you want to connect multiple patches, position and secure them all to make sure they are properly placed and straight.
Sew the first patch through the needle through the bottom side of the shirt and the edge of the patch. Pull the needle and thread until the thread is tightened. Push the needle back to the edge of the patch near where it just passed through. Continue sewing along the edges until the patch is fixed. Because the raised edges of the patch make it difficult to pull and push the needle, use a thimble to protect your thumb and finger. After applying the patch, remove the stitches.
Use fusible tape
Cut an appropriate amount of tape to fit under the patch.
Preheat the iron over the cotton, making sure the steam option is off. Iron suitable shirts for 15 to 20 seconds.
Place the adhesive tape under the patch and place the patch on the shirt as per the Cub Scout uniform guide. Make sure the patch is straight.
Place a handkerchief or towel over the patch to protect the patch and apply the iron ring on top of the patch for about 30 seconds. Remove the handkerchief and gently pull the edge to make sure the patch is firm. If it is not safe, replace the handkerchief and iron the patch for about 20 seconds or until it sticks.
