flip flop supplies

What you'll need

  • 1/4 yard of fabric
  • 1 pair of flip flops
  • Scissors
  • Tape measure
  • Sewing machine (optional)

What you'll do

picture 2

Cut your fabric into four (4-1/2 x 22-inch) strips.

step 3

If you don't mind unfinished edges (or if you hate sewing) you can skip this step. If you prefer a more finished look, fold your fabric strips in half lengthwise with right sides together. Sew 1/4-inch from the edge and then turn the strip right side out.

step 4

Use your scissors to snip off the original straps to the flip flop.

step 5

Cut both ends of each of your fabric strips to a point.

step 6

Feed the ends of two fabric strips into the hole at the toe of one flip flop.

step 7

Turn the flip flop over and tie the two fabric strips together in a knot.

step 8

On the top side of the flip flop, tie the two strips together in a knot, about 1-inch from the sole of the shoe.

step 9

Feed the two straps into the two holes at the sides of the flip flop. Place your foot in the shoe, tighten the fabric until it is comfortable, and tie a knot at the underside of the flip flop. Trim off any excess fabric.

step 10

Repeat these steps for the other flip flop and enjoy your new shoes!
