Instructables
I just got back from my annual 5 day backpacking trip and on the last day, I managed to get part of my sleeping bag stuck in the zipper and it tore!  I knew if I left it, all the down stuffing would come out and there would be feathers everywhere!  Fortunately, the fix was very simple, all you need is a sleeping pad patch!

Step 1: Locate the hole

If you have feathers flying out of your sleeping bag, this might be more difficult.  Fortunately, I was able to fix the tear right after it happened, so I didn't have to spend hours combing over every inch of my sleeping bag.  I've had to do that before and it's a huge pain.  Shove as many feathers back inside as possible and then smooth out as many wrinkles as you can.

U should cut the patches' corners to make it round or else the corners start to peel with use. (re. bike tire...)
Good idea! If I had scissors handy at the time, I would have probably done that.
