This blog post is part of a blog train hosted by Agatha from Green Issues by Agy. The carriage leading up to mine is A.B.S.O.L.U.T.E by The Accidental Mom Blogger. Adeline is a Stay-at-home-mum and also a jewelry artisan, so check our her creations!
|Sandals falling apart|
The strange thing about this pair of sandals was that the Hubs actually asked me to repair it when I was ready to chuck it in the bin! Why is that strange? Because the Hubs is usually the "thrower" in the family. Maybe he realised that the part that was still holding on (see ugly glue bits in the top photo) was actually the part where I used the glue gun on. Anyway, I set about fixing this using my trusty glue gun:
|Glue gun to the rescue!|
After lots of glue, glue and more glue, the sandal is back in one proper piece again! Yes I know, there's hot glue peaking out everywhere.... but my goal was to make it wearable, not to make it look brand new :p Now, this pair of sandals will be reserved for wading in water when the Little One goes fishing in the river. Hopefully all that water wouldn't make it disintegrate again. If it does, I suppose a little drying and gluing will get it ready for the next fishing session. I'd rather Little One keep his other newer, nicer shoes away from the water.
Now that I'm done with my repair, let's see who's in the next carriage - Yaney from Adopt an Ami!! She is a multi-talented crafter who dabbles in various mediums. Other than her cute amigurumis, what caught my eye were the Harry Porter series items - kawaii!!!
This post is part of a blog train hosted by Agatha from Green Issues by Agy on "Making Good". What is repair, and why do we even bother to repair the things we have? Some see repair as a way of reconnecting with our possessions as we extend their lives. Others see it as a form of creative potential and an avenue to express their craft. The rewards for mending varies from feeling immense satisfaction to prolonging the life of the product. Follow the "Making Good" blog train this month and see what we have repaired and reconnected with. Have you mended anything today?
