These are some iron-on patches that are part of a gift I am giving to a friend for Christmas. She is receiving a homemade bag and a second-hand jacket from other people, so I made these for her to spiffy them up some!

(We have a running joke about dinosaurs, she loves turtles, and she is a recycling nut.)





Here is the back-side with the iron stuff attached:


I am thinking about going back to add buttons and beads for decoration, but I am not sure how that will fair under the iron...

Fun idea. She's lucky to have such crafty and clever friends.
Beads and buttons can scratch an iron. I don't have an official pressing cloth. I use a layer or two of muslin. A pillowcase would work. Plastic beads or buttons could melt. I would use glass or vintage. Cheap buttons will be more likely to melt. And then she can do the final press from the wrong side of the fabric.
They'll be great!
