Fabric glue really saves on frustrating time spent trying to sew and iron on patches, but the glues themselves are also incredibly easy to use. Most just require a thin amount of glue to be spread on the back of the patch and then the patch applied and pressed down onto the fabric.
All fabric glues will hold up well in the wash, but not for long. Each use will weaken the glue, so be careful when washing. Don't use glue on items you want to last a long time.

Using a fabric glue is a fast and straightforward way of applying patches on a leather jacket. If you decide to use fabric glue, be sure to use the right type of glue (heavy-duty permanent fabric glue) as some glues can discolor the leather. Some glue can also come off after a few months of wash and wear.
Does Fabric Glue Work On Denim? Yes, it will but you need to follow the directions to make sure you have enough glue on the denim and patch to have the glue hold. Also, the type of glue you use is important. Temporary glue is not a good option as it is not designed to permanently fix holes in denim.
Ironing on a patch is actually the easiest way to get a patch on your clothes(such as a uniform or a jacket) or backpack. You can do it with just a tea towel and an iron, which most households will have anyway. Sew-on patches are a bit tougher because not everyone will have access to a sewing machine.
