We had a small hole in the mesh in our pack n play, a little girl I watched decided to rip it open!  Now its about the size of an orange, but more oblong.  Does anyone know if this can be fixed?  Or is it a lost cause?  Thanks!

1) Redneck-y but effective and quick: Duct tape on either side of the mesh.  Duct tape will hold anything. Cheesy  And it now comes in colors to match any decor!

2) More involved, but preserves visibility: Get a piece of nylon mesh several inches larger than the hole (the mesh they use for lingerie washing bags is fairly sturdy and you can usually find one of the bags for about a dollar).  Trim edges of hole, and carefully sew the nylon around the hole. 

3) More involved, but decorative: Cut two mirror-image decorative patches from a sturdy non-fraying material such as fleece or jersey or wool felt.  Stitch together, one on each side of the mesh, to cover the hole entirely.

4) Way too involved for my taste, but you COULD just darn over the hole (trim hole to a square, and weave unwaxed dental floss or something similarly durable back and forth over the hole to mimic the weave of the mesh).

Thank you so much!  I had just rembered that I posted about this as my son has just now really started wiggling around in there and has found the hole.  I am going to try a fleece patch.  I hope that the hole doesn't "grow" any larger than that Smiley  Thanks!!!
