Patent No. 5,569,345


Issued: October 29, 1996

Inventor: Sarah Kenyon, Ovid, New York


A method of making soft, flexible patches which may be ironed on to the softest garments.

The patches are especially suitable for decoration or reinforcement of fleece or flannel sweatsuits, such as those worn by children. They will not fray, and are flexible enough that they do not make the garment uncomfortably stiff.

The patch is made of a layer of fleece material such as flannel, bonded to a layer of heat-fusible transfer web. The patch is trimmed to a pattern and bound with thread using an overlock stitch of 2.5 to 5 stitch per cm density and approximately 5 ±2 mm depth.
