Need adhesive to hold leather patches on hats..

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, I am adding some leather patches to structured trucker style hats and Need some help on what to use to hold them to the hats. I will be sewing the patches after they are stuck to the hats but need them to hold while i manipulate the hat. There are some companies selling leather patch hats without sewing and supposedly they are holding up well. Would this be a type of heat applied adhesive?

Personally, I would be trying contact adhesive in the 1st instance.

Apply some to the patch and some to the hat, allow it to tack off for ~10 minutes, then position the patch exactly where you want it. Allow it to set off further with some pressure on the patch for a few minutes, or tap it down with a flat faced hammer. Stitch!

E6000 if you don't want to stitch. Carpet tape if you need a temporary hold before stitching.
