Then, I coated the scraped area generously with glossy Mod Podge.
Next, I patted my fabric onto the wet Mod Podge and used the end of my fingernail to coax it into the tiny space between the rubber of the sole and the patent leather. (Sorry this picture isn't very clear.)
I let it dry for about 20 minutes and then coated the whole thing with another coat of Mod Podge.
I used a sponge brush and did my best to keep a straight line near the edges of the fabric because I didn't know how the Mod Podge would or would not blend in with the patent leather. I let the Mod Podge go just over the edge (1/8 inch ??) so it would be sure to seal the fabric completely.
I didn't worry too much about Mod Podge getting into the rubber part of the shoe.
