The second in our river series featuring a hand-illustrated (by the owner!) image of a section of the popular Green River in Wyoming. You might recognize Squaretop Mountain in the background as the cool clear river flows out of it.
About the Green River:
The Green River, a major tributary (and some say, the true source) of the great Colorado River system, is born from the meltwater of Pinedale, Wyoming’s Wind River Mountains. From Green River Lakes, the Green River runs 730 miles to join Colorado deep in Utah’s Canyonlands National Park. The Green River is not only one of the major waterways of the Rocky Mountain West, but it is also Pinedale’s agricultural lifeline, the recreational crown jewel, and the basis of most of the region’s early history. Today visitors come to play on the Green, whether for fishing, floating, hunting, camping, or just enjoying the scenery. Anglers can hook Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat, Mackinaw (lake trout), Rainbows, and Mountain Whitefish. (source)
Patch comes with heat seal baking for iron on or heat press application (can also be sewn on).
Dimensions approx. 3.25″ X 2.15″.
Basic DIY at home instructions.
1. Set the iron to “cotton” or “high heat” on the temperature setting.
2. Lay the garment flat (on an ironing board).
3. Preheat the garment where the patch will be attached. You should protect your garment by putting an inexpensive cloth, sheet, or pillowcase between the iron and the garment. Then, press the heated iron firmly down on top of that cloth for 10 seconds.
4. Place the patch on the pre-heated spot. Put the cloth, sheet or pillowcase on top of the embroidered part of the patch so you don’t burn the embroidery thread. Press firmly on the iron for 15-20 seconds.
5. If possible, repeat this step through the reverse side of the garment. Be sure to use your thin cloth, sheet or pillowcase so you don’t burn the garment.
6. This is important: Your glue will be hot and liquified but it will cool fast and harden soon. Be very careful to not let the patch move around on the garment before the glue hardens. If it moves around, the bond will not be as secure.
7. Set your garment aside and let it cool back down to room temperature.
