I bought a heavy sandbag which is supposed to be able to be dropped. Given the good ratings it has, I assume it had a manufacturing fault as the seam exploded the first time I dropped it.
Luckily, as insurance I bought this sewing awl, that comes with waxed thread that is thicker than what the sandbag is sewn together by.
Will this thread be suitable, and can you please point me to the best stitching method/pattern for repairing this seam, given that I only have this awl to hand?
Edit: I also have 50mm wide nylon webbing to hand, perhaps I can use that to reinforce the seam?
