With a full time job and freelancing on side, free time comes very far and few. I think that’s why I cherish my Sundays so much! I always spend one full day out of the week doing exactly what I want to do and today that’s playing on my sewing machine and yes of course, blogging =) After altering some of my clothing I decided to doctor up Aaron’s TOMS. I had some of my favorite fabric leftover from my last project and his poor TOMS had holes at the toes and in the heels! I’ve seen TOMS patched all the way around but I decided just to patch where needed.
Step 1: Gather your materials. Toms, fabric, fabric glue, thread & needle (hand sew or sewing machine) scissors, and pins.
Step 2: Measure and cut your fabric according to size and only hem top edge of fabric closest to you (away from your toes).
Step 3: Pin hemmed fabric along TOMS stich lines, and pin bottom half of fabric along the soles of the shoes. Using fabric chalk, mark along the lines of where to cute remaining fabric.
Step 4: Glue fabric along the stich lines, tuck and pin in place until dry.
Step 5: Measure, cut and hem additional patches.
Step 6: Glue,tuck and pin in place until dry.
Ta-Da! And you’re done! Have a lovely rest of the week..
