my current sleeping bag has some cold spots in the foot box Id like to fix. I ordered 4oz of 750fill down to overstuff or should I say properly stuff, my footbox. I may have ordered to much, I didnt realize how much 4oz's of down would be.

Well I have a seam ripper and plan to rip the seams of the foot box and the next two baffles to add more down. I also plan to do this on the inside of the sleeping bag since I'll have to hand sew it back and it obviously will not look as nice. Anyhow I don't know much about sewing and was wondering if I should do a particular stitch to strengthen the area to keep the fabric from ripping or just ripping open again. I was just going to do a simple loop stitch around the ends of the fabric that I seam ripped.

My gear is no where near lightweight
