l have a hint that may help someone one: l developed a hole in my tapestry knitting (standing) bag, It was in a place where l couldn't reach it with needle and thread to mend it. What to do? it was about the size of a dime, l trimmed away the loose threads, then found 2 buttons, a little larger than the hole. the plain one l held to the inside of the bag, and put hot glue into the hole, and immediately topped it with a fancy button...Ah! it worked. the hole is covered., the bag is decorated, the hole is gone. l look forward to your next message.
