I haven't had to patch one in a while so I'd thought I'd share. One step that was always difficult for me was glueing the base tape back on securely and smoothly. I've settled on this latex adhesive from the local hardware store and painters tape to keep the base tape on while the latex dries. This was my first time sewing the casing back together around the stem. It seems ok.
