This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the Straw Badge in Textiles.

For this BB, you will mend a hole in a shoe or slipper using natural materials (without glues, iron-ons, or duct tape).
Note: repairing leather shoes have their own BB.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - make a sewn or needle-felted repair to a hole in a shoe or slipper
 - use natural materials like cotton or wool

To document your completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pictures or a video (less than two minutes):
 - shoe or slipper with the hole to be repaired
 - the tools and materials you will use
 - the repair in progress
 - your shoe or slipper with the hole repaired!

optional: describe how you mended the hole
