I Am A Cobbler

One of my small, achievable goals for this week was taking things that needed fixing out to get repaired. For example, the Velcro on the strap of these sandals had become unstitched. They are a workhorse of my footwear wardrobe, and I was willing to pay whatever it took to get them to last one more season.

At the same time, I’m also trying to keep my overhead low. So I thought I’d try fixing them myself with some superglue I just happened to have lying around from reattaching my mom’s watch strap.If it didn’t work, I reckoned, I could still take the sandals that the shoemaker.

I’m happy to report that so far, so good. Granted, it’s been snowing for the last two days so I haven’t had much opportunity to test the bond. I’m feeling rather pleased with my restoration projects. I have more to share this week.
