The front patch on my scapular fell off, so i stapled it to the other patch (back to back so if you turn it over you see the other one). I don’t have any sewing materials, that’s why I used staples. Is this okay?
I would imagine so, unless you got some sick thrill out of stapling it...

I just thought since they are both on the same side now that it might now be proper form for a scapular.
I don’t think that is proper form.

“The scapular must be 100% wool without plastic casing and should not be pinned or affixed to clothing. It is worn over the head, under one’s clothes, with one square of wool hanging on the chest and the other on the back. Pictures are not necessary.”

I would just burn/bury it and get a new one.

I agree that since it's a garment there needs to be a piece in front and back. However, you should be able to buy one for  around a dollar, if you can afford that. With luck it might last until you can afford to buy a decent one. Smile
