DIY Toms Sandals!...

After seeing all the neat ideas you can do with Toms, I decided it was time to do something to my sad, worn out pair that had been sitting in my closet. They were too wore out to paint or cover with fabric, and with Spring approaching, I decided to turn them into a pair of sandals!

(Here is the before, as you can see they are very sad and pitiful!)

I used a seam ripper and a pair of scissors to cut them. 

I cut the front of the shoes first and then worked my way around. I left the areas that had thicker fabric so the shoes would hold up and last longer. 

I also left the back part of the shoes. That way they would still fit snug and my heel would be covered. 

TADA!! Now you have yourself a pair of Toms Sandals!!! This is super easy to do and took me about 30 minutes! They are still super comfy too!!

I hope you all enjoyed this DIY post! What have you done to your old Toms? Feel free to post pictures to my Facebook Page!!
