How to sew on a patch without getting really annoyed?

The camino shell patch has an iron-on-back and if you want, you can start by ironing it on. However, learnt by doing, it won’t last your whole camino!

So we recommend you follow our sew-on-guide for dummies or #askmom or #askascout

  • Place to the patch somewhere that allows you to reach the back of the material
  • Choose a sewing thread that matches the background colour of the patch – not the edge colour.
  • Fasten the patch at the top with a single stitch right between the edge and the background area. Tie a knot.
  • Adjust and turn the patch until you have it where you want it.
  • Now start sewing the patch right on the border between the edge and the background colour. The knot at the top will ensure that the patch does not move around while you are sewing.
  • Sew with up and down stitches. This will look much better than if your try circular stitches.
  • Congrats!!! You did it!!
