I’ve declared today the unofficial day of rescued shoes. Let’s start the morning off with find out how Laura from Over the Apple Tree fixed her daughter’s favorite pair of boots.
“When this pair that still fit her started falling apart, I thought I’d at least try and see if I could make them last a little longer,” Laura tells us. She started by using some all-purpose glue to cover the holes in these shoes with fabric. She really soaked the fabric with glue for before applying it and letting it dry thoroughly. After that, Laura covered over the patches with Tulip brand dimensional fabric paint. She used two layers of paint, and when the shoes started to look a little too gold, Laura mixed a little bit of silver glitter into it. Her daughter is thrilled with the shoes, and Lauren is thrilled that she could extend the life of these.
