I replied off the list before, but just in case other may NOT
want to sew at all . . .
Try fusible interfacing (spelling ???) You can get it at most
fabric stores. Is it a bit more permanent that velcro, but all
you need is an iron. Cut the F/I just bit smaller than the
patch, and iron - check the instructions at the fabric store
for settings and temps etc. It will wash and wear OK, on a
permanent press cycle in washer and dryer.
When you do want to change the patch, you can reheat with the
iron, and peel. After a couple applications it may leave a mark on
the shirt sleves. I don't change my patch every day, so I find
it my choice. Plus I leave that one "naked" shirt for wood badge.
