Good observed. I'd rather repair my gear with an appropriate cotton thread than with the king size line intended for leather and hide sewing.
My next project is to shorten and hem a German flectarn field parka, that is long as a coat. Maybe I should put the DIY awl to the test
If I die, my biggest fear is that my wife will sell my gear for what I told her I paid for it.
I am learning from my mistakes, so I can make better and bigger mistakes.
