My grandson wanted to wear his Dad's older suit, discovered a tear in one sleeve. Grandma, can you fix it? I looked at it and remembererd I had some BoNash Bonding Agent. F ollowing instructions, I cut a hole just a little bigger than the tear, then cut another circle just a tiny bit larger than the cut out piece. Using the directions I placed the sleeve over my sleeve board, put a small piece of applique pressing material under it, and placed the circle in the hole. Pressed it and it looked beautiful. I then pressed a piece of black press-on interfacing in the inside to stablize it. So a savings of maybe $150 to $200. I got this product at a quilting show.
