Refashion Friday: Flip Flops


How do you get cute summer sandals for $1? You hit the $1 flip flop sale at Old Navy and refashion them! I cut the plastic straps off my flip flops and then made my own knit fabric straps. I love them! My pattern needs a little tweaking, but I liked how they turned out for my first pair.

I want to make a tutorial for these, but it's kind of hard to make a pattern and take pictures for a tutorial at the same time so you'll have to wait until I make another pair. :)

I put sequins on mine, but there are lots of possibilities for other accents like flowers or ruffles. The sequins were from the shirt that I cut up to make these flip flops.

I've enjoyed doing Refashion Friday posts again! Obviously, I haven't been doing them every week like I intended, but since it's just for fun and de-stashing I guess it doesn't really matter.

  1. Very, very cute!! God has sure gifted you in the creative dept. I have a question for you. I know you have created skirts from jeans. Do you think you could do the same with pregnancy jeans into a pregnancy skirt? I'd love to have a long, maternity jean skirt. Let me know if it's something you feel up to tackling/what you would charge/what I would need to provide you with, etc. thanks! if it's not something you want to do, it's not a problem at all :o)
