I found the idea for this new pair from HERE. You'll find a 2-part tutorial for how to make them in full detail. Only a small amount of fabric is needed, really. I chose to work with four different shades/patterns of pink fabrics. Then, with pinking shears, I cut each fabric into 3/4" strips. I then cut the strips into shorter pieces, each 5" in length. Give or take, you will probably use around 60 of these pieces for each flip flop... Actually, you may use more, if your shoe size is bigger than mine. I wear a size 5. Anyways, all you do is tie these pieces onto the top/strap of your flip flop, till it's fully covered. You can trim these lengths of fabric, if you want, once you've knotted them. You have the option to further embellish them, as you see HERE; but I liked mine just the way they were!... So, here I made myself another new pair to flip flops... again, in only one night, while watching t.v.!
Now, I don't suppose I would wear these to work, or to church; but for less formal occasions, I think these are cute, and just plain FUN! In fact, all I had to do now was paint my toes in a pretty shade of pink, and now I'm all set to wear mine for the day!
I don't know. I can't tell. Do you think "Little Boy Bu" likes them?
Well, my feet are looking pretty stylish now, but I still haven't painted my fingernails to match! I'll do that as soon as I bring the dog back in!
Thanks to Beverly for hosting Pink Saturday each and every week! I hope you'll pay her a visit at How Sweet the Sound, then maybe some of the other participants, who will be sharing their pinks for the day too!...
