Can this be fixed??

I got the hot exhausted from a zero turn against my walk behind bagger. It burned a tennis ball sized hole in the bag. Can this be patched? Or how would you fix this?

Get a large needle and sew it up with dental floss.

Go to the Safeway and in the housewares area, with tape and glue is this stuff called "speed sew"

Buy a tube of it for about five bucks and cut a patch off of an old pair of jeans.

If they don't have speed sew, tell them that you want the stuff that glues patches onto clothing.

This stuff is kind of a milky white silicone, but thinner.

I'd use a piece of heavy denim or something similiar cut about 1/2"-3/4" larger than the hole, and believe it or not- Shoo-Goo. Just run a decent bead around the edge of the hole, and lay the patch over it (maybe press it into the SG very lightly, but you don't want to totally flatten down the bead of SG) and let it dry for a couple days. After about one day, run a little more SG around the edge (and overlapping it) of the patch to form a good seal/edge so that the patch can't be accidentally snagged and torn loose

Gorilla Tape both sides in opposite directions. Should do fine.

I've tried sewing it before with heavy fishing line or string but that works best if you have a slice or cut in the bag and need to hold it together - a melted hole needs a patch.
