‘DIY or DIE’ applique patch in industrial colour themes.
Choose from either:
1. Red, grey, black and white.
2. Yellow, mint, grey, black and white.
3. Tangerine, grey, black and white.
The red and yellow variations are made from fluffy tie dye minky fabric for added texture and depth of colour.
It doesnt pill and is a very durable material.
Expect to see shades of black, grey and random splashes of navy blue.
The tangerine variation is made from a medium weight cotton drill.
Backed with a strong heat activated adhesive.
There are always colour variances within the tie dye minky, so each patch will be totally unique.
Each one is made and cut out individually one at a time on my embroidery machine.
The patches I make contain some recycled and new materials.
Pieces and scraps of new materials are always saved from various projects and kept aside for patch making, making a huge reduction in wasted materials.
All variations of the DIY or Die patch have a diameter of approx 80 mm.
PLEASE READ THE LISTING carefully. Your item WILL VARY SLIGHTLY to the one pictured due to uncontrollable variants in fabric e.g. tie dye colours.
Basic instructions for application.
Set iron to the hottest setting, no steam.
Check the garment label for ironing instructions, cottons or denim take patches the best.
Place a tea towel over the top of the patch and garment and then apply the heat.
Please do not iron the minky directly, it will most definately melt!!!!
Press for about 20-30 seconds.
Turn the garment inside out and press the iron to the reverse side for another 20-30 seconds after the initial press.
For the strongest fix I recommend a little hand stitching around the edge after ironing.
