A couple times while traveling in Ireland, I longed for a needle and tread to mend some small thing before it became a bigger thing that couldn’t be fixed.
When a few short days after I returned, my daughter split her shorts open, I harvested some of the fabric and string ties and buttons before throwing the rest away.
I used the tie material as bias tape, and formed an envelope shape.
I will probably put some nail clippers in there when I travel. I think they are allowed now by the airlines.
