    I have a heavy duty sewing machine I borrowed to do some canvas work for duck hunting. It is for sail making and repairs as well as other heavy duty tasks. I don't have a clue how to sew but I did watch 4 videos on the use of the machine online.

    Sounds like fun. I have an old leather jacket that I'd love to use for stuff. Is it possible or practical to make saddle covers for bikes? My commuter bike seat has a small tear, would love to cover it up. Might just use nylon though.

    Oh well how about that! I'm so used to the ghetto-band-aid approach to everything

    I've got two saddles that have some tears. I see that gloves are also repairable- How about ski gloves? John's got a beloved pair that he can't seem to replace.
