If a small hole has formed on the front or bottom of your bag, you can easily repair it by applying a patch or a piece of adhesive roll (round shape one or two cm larger than the hole). We advise you to apply it on the inside as well as the outside.
If the hole is bigger, go to a cobbler and take advantage of his expertise to give your backpack a second life.
