Here's a project I did back in 2006 that I figured was worthy of an Instructable.

Most of our friends have kids older than ours. As such, we've been given a lot of hand-me-downs. One of the things we really loved were those soft-soled baby shoes. Unfortunately, it didn't take Fuller long to wear holes in the soles. So, I came up with a quick and easy way to get some new life out of these wonderful shoes.

Step 1: Materials

Pretty straightforward materials list:

1 old mouse pad
1 tube of household adhesive or epoxy
1 sheet of paper
1 pen or pencil
1 pair of scissors
1 roll of scotch or masking tape
1 old plastic credit card
its robeezs not robezz...
Noted, and corrected.
How can this have had no comments, i don't have children so i am not really affected by this but it is a very well made and executed instructable good job.
What a clever and purposeful project and those little shoes are up to 28 bucks!! works well, smooth glue well!!
No comments? Ok, I'll start. This is a very creative project. Good job!
Thank you, MrCrumley. It means a lot to receive such high praise from you.
You're welcome.
