Patches on bags? To glue or sew?

Post by Laurensdad » Tue Mar 24, 2020 11:50 am

I've my Bikepacking.com patch and one from my local bike shop that I'd like to put on my restrap frame bag.

Can anyone recommend a suitable adhesive as my sewing skills don't extend much beyond a button....

Cheers all, stay safe

Taylor reckons standard silicone sealer is by far the very best thing.

I`ve always glued stuff , have stuck cloth patches on leather motorbike jacket with Evo stick contact adhesive.
Put some on patch and some on whatever you want to stick it to and allow to be touch dry, then press together, and hold them for a bit.
And I can`t sew.

The scout & guide shop sell badge glue, but as far as I can tell it's just slightly thinned silicone sealant.
