Ski jackets are designed to prevent the cold air from penetrating through to your skin while skiing, but most of them aren’t too stylish; many ski jackets look the same. Enhance the look of your ski jacket by applying iron-on patches, which are self-adhesive patches that are applied to clothing items, including ski jackets, with nothing more than heat and pressure. Jazz up your ski jacket and give it some style by applying some iron-on patches before your next ski trip.

Items you will need

  • Iron
  • Ironing board
  • Bath towel
Step 1

Lay the jacket on an ironing board so the portion of the jacket on which you want to apply a patch is facing upward. The area for application should be wrinkle free.

Step 2

Plug in a clothes iron and turn it to the “cotton” or “high heat” setting. Let it warm up for 1 minute.

Step 3

Place a bath towel on top of the jacket, covering the area where the patch will be applied. Rest the iron on top of the towel, over the area where the patch will be applied, and press down for 10 seconds.

Step 4

Remove the iron from the towel. Remove the towel from the jacket.

Step 5

Place the iron-on patch onto the jacket, which is now warm. Place the same bath towel on top of the iron-on patch.

Step 6

Rest the iron on top of the towel, over the area where the patch is lying on the jacket, and press down firmly for 10 seconds.

Step 7

Remove the iron from the towel. Remove the towel from the jacket. Let the jacket and iron-on patch rest until they are completely cool before moving the jacket and/or putting it on.
