My Thoughts, Tips, and Experiences in Fashion
Last weekend the beaded flip flops I wear all the time in the summer, finally gave out and broke. I knew that I was going to have to replace them soon because the soles were wearing a little thin, but I was hoping to get through the rest of the summer.
No such luck.
So instead of buying new sandals (partially because the store I bought them from, Accessorize, is no longer in North America) I decided I would DIY my own. So I bought some super cheap ($2) flip flops, ribbon, chain, and different beads.
The first step was to wrap the flip flops in the ribbon. Because there is nothing worse than cheap plastic flip flops rubbing your feet raw. The ribbon also dressed up the sandals to make them look a little fancier.
Next I sewed the beads and the chain on. I did them at the same time to save time and energy. The plastic on the sandals was a little challenging to get through, so there was no way I was going to do twice the work.
I think they turned out really great, and can’t wait to get started on a second pair!
