This fun patch features an adorable, little cowboy. The image is from an actual antique photograph (1950's) of a little boy (my father), dressed up as a cowboy. I often draw inspiration from old photographs. This project was extra fun to work on.

This is a scissor cut, thick cotton and felt patch that is lightly quilted on the outline of the image. Over time the edges will fray a little to the seam line, which ads to the rustic charm. An adhesive backing has been applied and is designed to be ironed on and secured with stitching

This patch was made using a unique process in which photographs are printed onto fabric using sunlight and light sensitive dye.
Iron-on instruction:

1. It's best if the material you are applying the patch to is pre-washed without fabric softener.
2. Pre-heat iron to medium heat, no steam
3. Place patch, adhesive side down, on top of project.
4. Hold iron for 8 seconds on each section of the patch
5. If possible, iron the reverse side of the project.
6. Allow project to cool completely.
7. It is highly recommended that you secure the edges of the patch with a few stitches. You will not be able to drag a needle through the iron-on adhesive as it will gum up the needle. So, be sure to stick the edges of the patch through the felt layer, adding the adhesive.

Care instructions:

The patch will hold up to machine washing just fine but may wrinkle a little. Simply iron the patch to neaten.
