Its not technically diy, but I'm attempting to fix my brand new REI bag (that I can't exchange since they no longer have the item in stock).
There's a small tear on a seam in the floating lid, & I'm going to finally conquer my fear of the evil sewing machine! I'm sure I should take a class, but just figured I'd look for an easy answer...any specific thread I should be using? Any other important advice? If all fails, my mother in law is visiting through the weekend, & she knows her way around that demonic device!
