February Giveaway Winner and a Toms Rehab

March 1st (already..I can't believe it) and time to announce our February Giveaway winner! Congrats to Emmie! I couldn't find a blog for Emmie but she did attach her email so I've emailed you Emmie. Tomorrow I will announce our March Giveaway and I think you will like it.

Last night my grandson brought me a pair of Toms that he loves but that had horrible holes in them. Being on the tight budget of a 16 year old, he requested that I sew up the holes in these giant boy shoes. Well, there was no way! So I showed him some batik fabric I had and he liked it. I stuffed the Toms with tissue paper and used Modge Podge to apply the fabric. Here is the result:

Here's the heel area that was just gone. I took the label off and Modge Podged it back on.

He was happy. It was a dirty job (as you can see-lol) but I kind of like the way it turned out. I didn't take pictures of the "before" condition. You'd really be impressed if I did that! I might buy myself some black ones and Modge Podge some Cherries on the top or something. Have a great day! Hope you find some time to sew. Cheery wave from Bev

I just bought some modge podge, do you have to put anything else on after putting the modge podge on?

Nice job on the shoe rehabilitation! They appear very useful again.

That was such a cute idea. Years ago I covered a pair of high heels to match a dress I made for a wedding. I too was on a tight budget and didn't want to buy shoes and have them dyed. It worked out pretty good.
