Directions:

1) Turn your favorite piece of clothing inside-out. It would be advisable if you iron the section of the hole until it’s wrinkle-free. Then cut a piece of the fusing web that is slightly bigger than the hole you’re looking to patch.

2) After cutting the fusing web, push the fabric surrounding the hole together until you can no longer see the hole. Once you’re done, carefully place the fusing web over it.

Get the iron

3) Next, plug your iron in and set it to the “wool” setting. Make sure that you put wax paper over the fusing web so that it won’t stick to the iron.
