I designed and made three of these wallets. They sit idle on my sewn cardboard shelves.
|Function. The sewing awl is good for making these.|
|This is the wallet I use. I hacked it together two years ago, and it's so bad that it never fails.|
When my jeans get holes in them, I just patch them. Eventually they get so ragged I can't keep up and they retire. At least they can live on in internet pictures.
I think when something inanimate is repaired, it takes on an element of life. Usually only living things heal. These jeans are probably the best example I have of that.
