My other trick, which I learnt as a Girl Scout, is to glue the patch on with
Elmer's or other water-soluble glue (put waxed paper underneath the cloth to
keep it from glueing to the back of the shirt or MB sash <G>), weight with a
heavy book overnight, then sew on. It won't wiggle at all. The glue will wash
out the first time you put the item thru the wash-- or in the case po the MB
sash,. it doesn't need to.
Of couyrse, this doesn't work on the case of "The CoH is tonight and I have
to have these on NOW!" (Be Prepared)
