Hi!
I want to stick some iron on patches onto a jacket that is 80% PVC and 20% PU. I don't want to ruin the jacket so ironing them on is out and I'm guessing hot glue gun would be as well. I also wanted the option to be able to peel them off without damage if possible. Was thinking maybe PVA glue? Thanks in advance for your help Smiley

Rubber cement is peelable, and doesn't leave marks on paper.  It might work on your patches and jacket.  Buy a small jar and experiment.

Thanks, that sounds like a good idea. And I imagine it would bend and move with the fabric which would be ideal.
