Did you guess???
My project for last weeks Scrap Theme was the Switch Flops.
I came in 2nd. I am really proud of that! Did you see theWood Scrap Lantern that ChiWei from One Dog Woof. It is awesome. I'm thinking of making one for a night light for the kids room.
I am loving my "new" shoes. The possibilities are endless. You can use any fabrics- cotton, jersey, silk, denim, even ribbon. Even better you can wear them different every time you put them on. It's like having a new pair of shoes every time you open your closet!!! I love feeling like a have a new pair of shoes every time I open up my closet. But even better that they don't take up the room of a bunch of shoes.
You can whip a bunch of these out in no time!!!
Grab a pair of flip flops and some scrap fabric.
First thing you're going to do is convert your flip flops.
I used an exacto knife and cut the plastic pieces off from the bottom of the flip flop.
Next I took a piece a scrap fabric and cut a 1.2" x 4" rectangle. You will need 6 of these.
Fold it in half widthwise with right sides together. Stitch the long edge.
Turn right side out.
Tie it in a knot close to the ends. So you have a loop.
Push the loop through the hole in the flip flop.
Repeat with the remaining loops. Here is what it should look like.
Now for the straps.
I cut 2 strips of fabric 1.5 "- 2" wide and the length of the different pairs of straps varied.
Fold the in half and sew down the long edge.
Turn right side out.
Fold in the raw edges on the short edges and stitch closed.
Now have fun tying them different ways!!!!
Watch for Tie It Up Tuesdays where I will show you unique ways to tie your Switch Flops.
