UPDATE: so, the flip flops were a breeze! And turned out super cute! (photos on pg 1 of comments.) And I can change out the ribbon for foam straps or scarves or anything I want really. I'm happy with them. Now I have to wait til payday to get some shoe goo so I can make a pair of either flats or boat shoes. It was $4 at Walmart! A little more than I budgeted for, so it will have to wait til next Wednesday. I will post a second update when I get those done!



I'm going to make some shoes! I'm going to start simple with foam or cork flip flops, then work my way up to a cute pair of flats. I'm a little nervous! My problem with sewing is that my measurements never seem to be dead on. I'm anxious the shoes will be the same... Wish me luck. I'll post pictures when they're done!

Hey, you did a great job! Was it as hard to make them as you expected or not too bad?

Thank you! They were suuuper easy. Took me less than 10 minutes. I cheated a little though, I used a dollar store carpet rug thing instead of foam! Lol. But they are comfy, and cute, and cheap. My 3 favorite things! And I don't have to wrap them like I did, I was playing with them last night, and I can wear them like normal flip flops, or I can wrap them around the top of my feet and not my heel. I knotted the two pieces of ribbon between my toes and added beads. So cute. Then I undid them again! I love that I can have a different pair of sandals every day out of the same pair.
