'Smell The Roses' Patch
R O S E S
Two idioms in one. ‘Wake up and smell the coffee’ X ‘Stop and smell the roses’. This patch is one to remind you to step off the treadmill they call “life”, maybe go and smell those beautiful flowers you spotted on your way to work the other day ~ it’s those little moments that make each day feel a little smoother.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLYING PATCH TO GARMENT
Step 1: Set your hand iron at the hottest temperature setting. Do not use ANY steam!
Step 2: Place your patch in the desired position and place a cloth such as a handkerchief, sheet, tea towel or pillowcase over the top.
Step 3: Press the iron straight down for 35-45 seconds with as much constant pressure as possible. No back and forth movements but you can use slow circular movements.
Step 4: Turn the garment inside-out and repeat steps 2 & 3.
Step 5: Allow the patch to cool down.
Step 6: (optional) Now the patch is attached, you can add a couple of stitches to the corners for extra-safe secureness!
Alternatively, if you are a sewing whizz you can just sew the patch into place and then there is no need for ironing at all!
