Mending Ways

At first, I was hesitant to jump on the Toms band-wagon. The last thing we need is another hipster trend that makes your feet smell. Then I got over myself. Toms are simple and comfortable, and they resemble kung fu shoes. Also, I'm not too cool to by myself a pair of shoes and someone else a pair at the same time. But what happens when your toe pokes through the canvas? Do you go out and buy another pair? That seems wasteful and in disconnect with the Toms mission. So I decided I'd find a way to mend them. While browsing my favorite blog from free people, bldg 25, I came across this tutorial and decide to try it out. I used an old pair of jeans, guerilla glue, and sewing pins.

Pretty cool, right? If you try it out, leave a link to your finished product in the comments.

Happy Mending!
