I hadn't even thought to repair her holey TOMS, but when I came across the idea to do so on Pinterest I thought I would give it a try. I used this tutorial as my reference, although I did a few things differently.
Abby chose a blue swatch of home decor fabric I had on hand for the repair. I started by using a rotary cutter to make a perfectly straight fabric edge. This I lined up along the diagonal seam on the toe of each shoe, and attached it using fabric glue. I stuck pins in the gluey edge to help it bond completely.
The bottom edge was next along with more gluing and pinning.
|(Abby said it looked like a torture chamber at this point.)|
When that was dry I carefully cut along the bottom edge of the shoe, folded the fabric at the toe in the traditional TOMS manner, added more glue and pins, and waited.
She simply smiled and said, "maybe." :)
