…buuuuut, have any of you made one of these repairs before? Successfully? Used Tear-Aid before, or have a better suggestion? (The tear, to be more specific, is on the fabric side on the outside, and right on the overlap seam on the inside).
Any recommendations/DIY tips/home remedies/cheapskate solutions welcome.
Use contact adhesive & a piece of heavy fabric (blue jeans, etc.) cut slightly larger than the tear. Contact adhesive is cheap, very waterproof and remains flexible. It’s basically what’s inside that patch kit – only more versatile and cheaper. BTW, I’d put the patch over the seam to prevent the tear from getting any bigger.
