Putting embroidery patches and chenille patches on a letterman jacket can be done through sewing or using adhesive methods. Here’s a step-by-step guide for each method:

Method 1: Sewing

Materials needed:

  • Letterman jacket
  • Patches
  • Needle
  • Thread (matching the color of the jacket or the patch)
  • Scissors
  • Pins (optional)

Steps:

  1. Position the patches: Decide where you want to place the patches on the jacket. Use pins to temporarily hold the patches in place if needed.
  2. Thread the needle: Thread the needle with a sufficient length of thread, and tie a knot at the end.
  3. Start sewing: From the inside of the jacket, push the needle up through the fabric from the backside, near the edge of the patch. Pull the thread until the knot is secured against the fabric.
  4. Sew the patch: Use a simple running stitch or a whipstitch to sew around the edge of the patch. Make sure to go through both the patch and the jacket fabric to securely attach the patch.
  5. Continue stitching: Keep stitching around the entire patch until it is firmly attached to the jacket.
  6. Knot the thread: Once you have finished sewing, tie a knot on the inside of the jacket to secure the thread, and cut off any excess thread.
  7. Repeat for other patches: Repeat the process for all the patches you want to attach to the letterman jacket.

Method 2: Adhesive

Materials needed:

  • Letterman jacket
  • Patches
  • Fabric glue or iron-on adhesive

Steps:

  1. Position the patches: Decide where you want to place the patches on the jacket.
  2. Iron-on adhesive: If using iron-on adhesive, follow the instructions on the adhesive packaging. Typically, you’ll need to place the patch on the desired location, cover it with a cloth, and use a hot iron to apply heat and pressure for a specific duration. This will bond the patch to the jacket fabric.
  3. Fabric glue: If using fabric glue, apply a thin, even layer of glue to the backside of the patch. Press the patch firmly onto the jacket fabric in the desired location. Allow the glue to dry completely as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  4. Press and hold: Regardless of the adhesive method used, after applying the patch, press and hold it firmly in place for a few moments to ensure proper adhesion.
  5. Repeat for other patches: Repeat the process for all the patches you want to attach to the letterman jacket.

Remember to handle the patches and the jacket carefully throughout the process to ensure a neat and secure attachment.
