Is it better to sew or iron on a patch?
Sew on patches are great too. They add more flexibility to the garment on which the patch is attached. So, if you don’t want your patch to be a little stiff, you can have the iron on backing eliminated and once it’s sewn on, the patch can flow a bit with the fabric.
How do you tell if it’s an iron on patch?

How do you keep an iron on patch from falling off?
I recommend using a medium hot iron, and covering the patch with a thin handkerchief (or other thin fabric) while ironing it onto the garment. Press down hard for a few seconds, then keep the iron moving to prevent sticking, keep this up for 2–3 minutes.
