Fishing Line and Busted Jewels
Sawhill says, “A needle and clear nylon thread are a must. If a zipper busts or strap breaks there is nothing left to save you but these. Sew yourself in for the carpet and worry about getting out of it later. This is also a great way to fix broken jewelry. A few clear stitches can hold a broken chain or wrist clasp together when time has run out for a proper repair.” Plus, this stuff is small enough to fit into your “holds nothing but is totally cute” clutch.
