Heart Patch Shoe Repair

In May I repaired this pair of shoes!  There was a tiny hole in the top of one of the shoes, and one of the buckle straps had broken.

Patches don’t need to be boring!  I added a patch in the shape of a heart.  It looks like it was deliberately made with the original shoes.  If anyone would like me to repair shoes or other leather gear, I will happily apply creative patches to not only repair your items, but upgrade them!

The bottom of the two buckles had a broken strap.  I replaced the strap with new leather.  I also re-glued the straps on the inside of the shoe, because all of them were peeling.

Anyone else have examples of when they’ve repaired something in a creative manner?  I find that repairing things can often elevate them to a new level.  ~Kell
