Sewing Question- Potentially Gay

I have a blanket with a couple of tears that I want to stitch before putting it in the wash. Does anyone have any advice on this for someone who really doesn't know how to sew? Would the travel sewing kit be good enough or would I need to buy heavier duty thread/needles?

Find a woman, have her make you a sandwich, then while you are eating said sandwich, she will sew the blanket.

Finally a thread gayer that rockpup's?

I taught myself how to sew because I've ripped clothes while backpacking. For some reason every time I share a tent with Kyle and his bros I wake up with holes ripped in the seat of my pants. You can probably get by with a travel kit if you make it tight and double it up.

*sigh* My mom made me learn the basics in high school.

What kind of blanket? Is it thick or thin?

A travel kit should work, but double back and forth a lot. Keep the stitches as tight together as possible and don't sew too close to the tear, give an extra tab. Otherwise you'll tear out the threads.

If it's quilted and the tear is on the outside, rip apart some holey underwear to get some fabric scraps and lay that under the tear, inside the quilt. Then, when you sew it, sew the extra fabric as well as the tear, it will strengthen the bond. You can also do that with the regular blankets if you A) don't care what they look like or b) Have a "down" side to the blanket that no one sees anyway.

Proceed to call me a faggot.

Wrap yourself in the blanket and then set it on fire.

That will cost a lot of money.

Thanks. Can you recommend any videos to show me proper technique? I think I know what to do, but I want to double check. Also closing a stitch is a bitch.

Also it's a down comforter, not a quilt.

Good guy BIV: Gives real answer.

In all seriousness, you have to know at least one girl who can do it for you don't you?

Sewing isn't much different from carpentry. The concepts are similar, the tools are just different.

At the risk of sounding like a cum guzzler, this thread prompted me to purchase a sewing kit.
