Small tear with missing piece of quilted fabric on bottom outside of my rolling duffel..any ideas on how to best repair the fabric? Glue, patch, applique? Matrial missing is about dime sized

    Tess, ideally an appliqued patch would do the trick. You could probably find one at the fabric store but if you glue it on I would

    suggest you also stitch around it. Maybe you could find one with a happy face or something similar or humorous.

    Hi Tess. You could use Carpet Edge tape, Double sided tape with any fabric or patch, or sew a pocket over it just for fun!

    Consider why hole formed does it rub there.? Use fabric that best keeps further damage away. Consider over covering that area /strengthening with a fabric like canvas, blue jean fake leather.

    I was also considering using some of the patterned Duck tape. I can get to back of material on bottom to reinforce it...then cut Duck tape into a cute shape and apply outside of hole to make it look nice..do you think it would hold? The hole was formed from bag getting caught on something and tore
