I’m back from Thailand DIY‘ers! And I’m full of energy to start the new season with DIY’s for all tastes and levels! (soon photos of my trip 😉

I have been seeing that the trend of “lace up” or short boots with semi-open sides are sweeping the streets this season… And of course we can’t leave the DIY version out. You will see how easy it is to use your old “lace up” or “brogues” and renew them only by cutting holes.

6. (Optional) In the case of my shoes, the interior was a lighter color than the shoe and it contrasted on the edges of the hole. You can paint the edges with permanent marker so it won’t notice.
