Here is an ugly repair job. Plus there were four of them to do. Both of us have worn holes in the heels of our snow boot liners. I thought I'd try to repair them before investing a lot of money in new ones. I stuffed each hole with wool batting and then glued on a leather patch.
It looks a lot better now but it all depends on the strength of the fabric glue I used. I had to put a patch on the inside of two of the liners because they were worn right through. I don't have high hopes of those patches staying on.
For my own pleasure I made a few more kitty houses. I will make words saying Kitty Corner Winter or Kitty Corner in Winter or Winter at Kitty Corner. I'm not sure what color the words will be but I think I'll use the swirly dots for the background. I made all the windows bright yellow to give a feeling of warmth and homeyness. I like to imagine that there is hot chocolate or eggnog brewing in each of the houses.
