Hi,
I need to sew several reinforcement patches to a boat cover. The cover has several darts, especially up front where the bow mounted trolling motor is. I can't get the fabric to lay flat, and I'm probably going to get a lot of puckers. Is there an easy way to do this?
Is it possible to just glue/cement the patch in place instead of sewing? Thanks in advence!
Jo

It may be easier if you glue the fabric patch in place, and then go back and sew it down.  This will keep it from sliding around while you maneuver it through the machine.

I would go for a suitable double sided tape ( venture tape or similar).
Then sew it.
Be careful with glue that it doesn't attack the fabric. Choose carefully.
