Picture of How to fix torn Converse and replace eyelets
While riding my bike shoelace got stuck in the pedal and I torn my new Converses. I went to local shoemaker and he told me that this is hard to fix and that it will cost me 35 EUR (45 USD). I decided to fix them myself.

Im planning to make more guides, one of them will be making own pilot watch from scratch using ready ETA movement so all feedback is welcome for developing my guide's quality.

I purchased eyelets, fabric glue and piece of linen cloth from local fabric shop, total cost was about 15 USD.
 

You're the best, I hope I don't have to buy tools for the eyelets.

Look for a package with the tool in it. There are packs with around 24 eyelets and a basic tool. OR you can get the fancy tool which usually has a few eyelets in it.

Good job. You need to take them to the shoemaker, and show them what you did on your own...I'm sure it will impress them.

Thank you Quanah! I will show my result to my local shoemaker next time I walk nearby.
