    sew-on

    Parcel full of sew-on patches is delivered to tennis club 40 YEARS LATE after falling behind machines at a sorting centre

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...#ixzz3sl2WUyuK

    I have consulted several dictionaries, but cannot find the meaning of sew-on.

    What does sew-on mean in the above passage?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: sew-on

    You can get sew-on, stick-on and iron-on patches.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
