Flippety Floppety Tutorial
I see a ton of the these sandal remakes all over Pinterest, so I finally decided to tackle one (or in this case, two) of my own. I neglected to take photos of my first pair during the process, but here is the finished product.
Now the second pair, that is a completely different story, I wanted simple little slip-on sandals that were still as comfortable. Sadly, the fabric I used would not flatten out and came out looking at the underside of the fabric.
On with the tutorial.
You will need a new pair if cheap flip flops, scissors, one half yard of fabric, scissors, and a hot glue gun. Once you have all that collected start by cutting the original straps off so the shoes look like this.
Now, on the top of the sandal tie your remaining fabric into three basic knots on top of each other. At first they will look short and stout, but after the third knot your can pull the fabric and it will stretch out the knots to look like this.
Next you want to pull the two edges through the two holes that will be at the arch of your foot. Once that is done, you will want to fit it to your foot like so. (I apologize for the dirty kitchen floor and the horrible nail polish remains.)
I hope you had fun with this. The project taught me just how much patience is needed when dealing with a hot glue gun and stretchy fabric. Luckily only a couple finger tips felt the burn. I am determined to only get better with the more projects I do. So, look for more to come. Thank you for the challenge.
