Battle Jacket Query

I just received my new Metallica 14" x 12" x 10" back patch. I've already sewn half of it on by myself, but I was told that it wouldn't stay on and that I should just take it to the local laundromat to be professionally sewn on. But really, that takes out the DIY aspect of creating and owning a jacket in the first place. Is there any way at all that I can properly sew the patch on myself, whether by hand or a home sewing machine?

Why can't you just sew it by hand?

A Metallica backpatch will no way lead to people singling you out in moshpits. Not at all.

I don't see how doing it by hand would be a bad idea, assuming you sew it on properly.

I hear that "battle jackets" are so '80s, man...

Seriously, we need more Metalheads who stop dressing like stereotypes.

Which is why 1) I don't wear that AND 2) no one else should EVER wear that.

I, too, am scratching my head over that.
