so i have tried to sew a perfect back patch ....but i had to think after many have come out lop sided or even just had big bubbles .. so here is an easy very cheap way to place one and actually have it look god and stay ....
you will need
1 back patch
1 elmers glue or a mid grade house hold glue
tap measure or ruler
2 pieces of card board the size or larger than the patch
and sewing needle / thread or dental floss-works great and stays long time!
Step 1: So You Have the Vest
take a piece of card board and the vest .....
lay it down flat
take a measure ment to a center area
then tape it on top and bottom
try it on look in a mirror , make sure the distances are at least similar and even is a must ...
Step 2: Glue Ing
so take the vest put card board under flat surface would work...
and remove on side of the tap fold over so that the other is keeping it on and even
put glue in a zig zag and spread it across
make sure it is enough to keep it on but not clumpy
then put vest down ...
even out and make flush
then put the other piece of card board on it
place heavy item on top, boxes work or even a guitar care anything with weight
Step 3: Now Almost Done
so after about an hour it should be relitively dry.. itf not let sit a lil longer
take the vest and sew the edges how ever you like ...
as long as it is gonan stay on
thats it you have a properly alligned vest that looks good and wont come off!
