How to fold the collar tabs to the right size?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I just got some of these bdu collar tabs at a militaria show for 25 cents each. The problem is I don't know how to properly fold them and get them on the jacket. Any help would be appreciated-I'm clueless :blink:

Each of the four sides needs to be folded back about one quarter of an inch or so to make a neat little "parcel" which neatly frames the insignia then press it so the folds stay in place. It can then be machine stitched in place. That way, no frayed edges will be exposed.
