Cordoba Ukulele

Can I use an iron on patch on my ukulele case?

I have a tenor sized cordoba ukulele case. its a hard-soft case, nylon (supposedly) fabric with 3 inches or so of padding on the inside. Its a very nice case, but being the girl that I am I would really like to decorate it a bit. I cant put on studs because the inside is too thick, I do use it in the rain (I live in Oregon...so LOTS of rain) so I'm not sure if an iron on patch would stick OR would it melt the fabric?
If so are there any other ideas for decorating my case? I could always sew on a patch but would like to save that for the last resort
And do you think dying it would work? painting with fabric dyes? or again does it not work because its nylon?
Here's a link to a similar product. is the EXACT same except mine is an ukulele http://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/cordoba-100gb-full-size-classical-guitar-gigbag

I agree that ironing nylon would ruin the fabric. As hot as you need for iron-ons will not work. There are alot of fabric patches that are not iron-on. They can be glued on or you could hand-stitch the patch. Hand-stitching the edge with an overhand stitch like you would use for hemming. If you glue the patches, use a fabric glue. Go to a sewing goods store to find it, or check online.

For other decorating ideas I can think of are ribbons or sequins. At the sewing goods store they will have different choices in different widths and colors. They might have sequins that are loose or on a ribbon. You might like glitter that you could glue on. Depending on how you handle the case, sequins might get knocked off though.

I don't recommend dying the fabric. You could try buying like a yard of nylon and try painting it. Just buy 1 paint to see how it looks. Also to see how good you are at painting. There is fabric paint. There's also spray paint for fabrics. There's alot of screen painted t-shirts. You could look around for some designs. You could even buy a screen-printed t-shirt, cut out the design to glue or sew onto the case.

Painting and screen painting may not be as easy as you think. That's why I recommend trying it on a sample piece first.

You may want to take a piece of paper and draw out some ideas. Get some colored pencils to help you imagine what it will look like. Once you glue or paint the fabric it's nearly impossible to remove it without damaging the fabric. Lay out your patches on the case to see where it would look best before attaching them.

Remember, how you decorate the case now, you may dislike a few years later. So just think about it.

Good Luck
