(Easily) Fix That Ripped Jacket
Don't stitch it, stick it!
Fine / light nylon fabrics like this don't stitch well. Stitching can actually make the tear worse.
A clear superglue tape, like Gorilla Crystal Clear, is quick, easy, waterproof, and hard-wearing.
Also great for raincoats, backpacks, umbrellas (the fabric bit), tents, sleeping bags, etc.
(Note: Fabrics with thicker fibres do stitch well, we love stitching and I do a lot of it at home!)

Let's reuse and repair our way back to school, and choose pre-loved / recycled / natural materials if buying.
