My favorite book bag that I made for myself TEN whole years ago is getting a little ratty. I love it so much. It is made out of one layer of this beautiful Italian upholstery fabric (on the outside) and black cotton duck on the inside. Unfortunately at the point on the shoulder strap where it rubs my shoulder, the cotton duck is all frayed and getting worse by the day.
I know I am too lazy to take the bag apart and re-line it. So option #B is to sew a piece of suede into the strap to reinforce it. I will probably have it done at a luggage repair place because my machine can't handle heavy stuff well.
So does anyone have a piece of black suede, about 4" x 8" or so, that you would be willing to trade? I don't want the super lightweight stuff, or the super heavy stuff, something in the middle.
I have a lot of crafty stuff--beads, stationery, yarn, fabric...and way more. I'll trade for supplies, or finished items, or whatever.
Thanks in advance,
