The trouble is, and any of you who wear the classic TOMS know this, is that if you wear them hard enough or long enough, the fabric will begin to fray. And soon your little piggies will start to poke out the front. The thing is, except for the holes at the toe, the shoes still have plenty more wear. I suppose we could all start walking around with our big toes exposed, or we can find a fix.
Ashley over at ashleyannphotography.com came up with a little tutorial for a custom repair. Her blog is worth a read for all sorts of creative inspiration. Photography. Crafting. DIY shoe fixes. And last night I finally used her tutorial to fix my sad looking TOMS.
I didn't get a before picture for you all, but this was the quick shot a took with my phone on the way to work this morning. I'm not sure that I'm in love with the fabric I chose, but I figure it's an easy change if I decide to go with another color or print.
