Approved BB submission
The stitching in my leather work gloves busted out, so I repaired it.

Ripped seam in thumb of right glove.

To make the mend, I sewed it with cotton carpet thread.

I turned the glove inside out and used pliers to pull the needle through.

View of seam re-sewn from the inside.

View of repair from outside.
