Too often people throw out broken things that can be easily repaired. This is a collection of repairs intended to demonstrate how simple it is to fix, rather than throw away.

Repaired holes in a knapsack
I have a great knapsack but over the years it developed holes in the bottom. Fixing the holes was simply a matter of hand sewing a piece of cotton inside and a piece of leather outside. I needed the cotton inside to keep things from entering the holes and I wanted the strong leather outside to make it even stronger and more waterproof than it originally was. The leather was scrap that cost $0.50 at a local scout/camping store.

If you have examples of simple repairs you've done that others can easily do, along with a photo or two, send them to me care of my email address at the bottom of this page and I'll include them here. If you have a lot of details that warrant a page of their own then see my share page.
