I was looking at putting a new patch on one of my gloves and I was wondering if anybody had some good techniques or ideas for getting the patch to stick to the leather? I am covering a logo essentially. Has anyone done this before? I was thinking of using glue but wasn't sure exactly how that might hold up. Stitching it on seems as though it may be difficult. My new patch for the glove is a typical embroidered patch I'm hoping to cover up the area where the regular Rawlings patch fits in. Any ideas would help.

You should use an adhesive that is flexible.
Go to a craft store or a fabric store. They sell flexible adhesives for use on leather and fabric.

Post some before and after pics.

I've tried this in the past with no luck. I used Bish's and from John Golomb's website (no specific name) and both couldn't keep the edges from peeling up no matter how long I let it cure. So yes please post if you find a good one!

Thanks for the help guys. I have in the past used a leather adhesive patch, along with barge all purpose cement and just placed that over the Rawlings patch. Worked pretty well, but could've been better. I also know a lady with a leather sewing needle. Might go ahead and take it to her and see what she can do. I'll keep you posted!
