      I'd be interested in learning that also. My first response, upon reading
      Asfridhr's speculation was to say, "no, on the inside!" because that is the
      most common method I learned for darning/patching frayed fabric. But what I
      learned is modern... I never once gave a thought to what would have been a
      period practise.
