Patching holes in portable

6 posts in this topic

Duct tape.
There are some canvas tent repair kits out there, which work pretty well. You can find them in the camping section of many stores. They come with a needle and thread, fabric and glue. Also, most of the tent and awning stores offer repair services, so if you aren't a master tailor that may be the way to go.

Darn mice huh?

I've patched my canvas holes with matching canvas cut to size cemented down with vinyl cement.

Good luck!

Something that an Iron Worker told/showed me was to go to a store like Runnings (or similar) and in there canvas/tarp section you should be able to find a product with a name something like "Tear Grease". It's in a squeeze bottle. You just cut a patch of canvas a little bigger than the hole and spread (work) the tear grease into both pieces of material. Does an excellent job, heck, it works great on jeans, carharts, etc. Just make sure that after you goop up the pieces and stick together that you place the canvas on some newspaper or plastic so you don't stick more than the patch and hole in canvas together. Beats a needle and thread any day!! Good Luck!
