    • Lay your pattern over the piece of fabric you’ve choosen to use as a patch.

    • It is important to choose a fabric that is only slightly heavier than your sweater, such as corduroy or a felted sweater. Anything heavier, such as denim or leather, may cause the sweater to tear.

    • To felt a sweater, simply put a 100% wool sweater through the washer and dryer. When it comes out, the sweater should be shrunken and have a very tight weave.

    • Pin your pattern piece onto your patch fabric.

    • If you double up the patch fabric before you pin you will get two identical patches, one for each side.
