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
