TENT—TO REPAIR—Can you tell me how to repair a hole in a tent to make it waterproof?
If the tent is torn bring the edges together and sew them with a whip stitch, then take a patch of the same material, spread It lightly With white lead and apply it to the underside, then sew the edges with a fine whip stitch. If there is a round hole to be repaired, simply apply the patch and whip the edges of the patch and the hole.
