Before we left home, we tried some Selley’s Shoe Glue which came highly recommended from a Byron Bay Shoemaker. We have glued the bits needing to be repaired. As yet RUDE Girl has not had a chance to test the repair on these boots which were scored from a neighbour’s GARAGE SALE for $4 total. Check out the video below.
RUDE girl will mend anything, even old undies, with a bit of life left in them. The $22 for these Bonds trunks is a bit over the top, so we try to buy up big when they are on special for half price. These are worth framing at $22 but for $10 they are definitely worth mending. Check out the video below.
On our travels this week, RUDE girl scored a little round vintage sewing basket.
I have seen these in Vinnies and The Salvos charity stores for $6 to $8, and not in as good as condition. This little cutie cost $1 but it required a quick fix repair job, as explained in the video below:
RUDE boy has worn a large hole through another pair of his vintage red tab Levi’s. You may have read that US Levi stores and outlets are giving 20 per cent off vouchers for old jeans. You can read more here. If this incentive was in Australia, there is no way the Levi company would be getting RUDE Boy’s vintage jeans. They are priceless and cannot be bought back.
I have unpicked the seams, so that when I return home next week, I can start to sashiko mend a third pair of RUDE boy’s jeans. Check out the video below.
Beat The Man and repair! It’s fun and very rewarding.
