How do you put a patch on a jacket without sewing?
Even if the patch isn’t specifically iron-on, you may still be able to attach it without sewing. You can use fabric glue to attach it to your jacket. Most fabric glue is just a simple application, apply it to the back of the patch then stick it onto the jacket.
How do you apply a patch without an iron?
Pro tip: If you don’t have an iron, you can use a hair straightener in a pinch! Plan your design. Lay out your piece of clothing on the ironing board and place the patch in the spot where you want to stick it. The adhesive side (i.e., the side without the design) should be flat against the fabric.
How do you install a patch temporarily?

Why do iron-on patches fall off?
