Patching Leather Moccasins:
The first thing I had to do was turn the moccasins inside out. Since the elastic goes all the way around the ankle, this was pretty easy. I cut a couple small pieces of scrap leather to patch the hole on each one. I still had a tube of shoe glue from sewing a pair of shoes and was able to use it for a quick fix on this pair as well. Following the instructions on the package, I put a thin layer of glue on the inside toe where the hole is and a thin layer on the leather patch and let it sit to dry for several minutes. I ignored the application instruction to use a cotton swab to apply the glue. Been there, done that. It doesn't work. I just put the spout up against the surface and squeeze very gently (or let gravity do it) while moving the tip around. Once they were ready, I put the patch against the toe seam, covering the hole. A large binder clip held it all together nicely while it dried for 24 hours. Even though some of the stitches came out as a result of the holes, the glue should hold the seams together. And the patch is small enough that it does not alter the look of the moccasins when they are being worn. The perfect quick fix!
