Paragraph 152. When a woolen garment is torn and the edges are not badly frayed, and none of the material is out and gone, it may be mended very satisfactorily with mending tissue, a rubber-like material used by tailors. To mend the tear, turn the garment to the wrong side, place the mending tissue over the hole so it completely covers it and extends at least 1" beyond the edge of the hole on all sides; lay a patch the same size as the mending tissue over it as shown in wrong side view, Figure 61. As the patch does not show, it is not necessary to match the figures or even the material in the garment. (The mending tissue has been allowed to extend from under the patch merely to show that it is there, this is not necessary in doing the work). Set an iron (hot enough to melt the mending tissue, but not hot enough to scorch the material) on the patch; hold it there (perfectly still) a short time, turn the garment right side out and examine the repaired spot, it should he unnoticeable as shown in the right side view, Figure 61.
