repurposing old sandals
At the end of the summer I went through my sandals and these 2 pairs where headed for the trash. I knew they were too worn out to be donated but, dumping them in the trash didn't feel right. I stop and think about what I throw away more then ever and these sandals had something that got me thinking ... maybe they can be re-purposed somehow. I didn't know how at the time but, I have kept them around in my "to make things with" stash. Using my new nifty sewing scissors (which cut through the leather like butter!) I cut up these sandals once and for all.
I am pretty excited about the "new" components I made from my old sandals. Not sure what the final creation will be yet but, I see so much potential in something I was about to just throw away.
Have you made a surprising discovery on how to reuse something destined for the trash? Tell me about it, that kind of stuff makes my day.
