Tutorial--Colorful Flip Flops--


This green caught my eye at a doller store last week. I always wanted to try something with flip flops but I didn't want to spend that much on them. I know I am cheap, and usually the cheap ones don't come in the colors I want. This was perfect!



Back in December I went to American Crafts' warehouse sale, so I had tons of ribbons. The fun part was picking out the right combination of ribbons.



For this project you will need:

Flip flops
Ribbons(I chose four but you can pick more or less)
fray check or a lighter
scissors
ruler

First, cut the ribbons diagonaly. These are small flip flops so I cut the ribbons 6" long. Then, to prevent the ribbon from fraying, use fray check or a lighter to seal the ends.



Tie the ribbons to the flip flops.



That's it! It was super easy and a fun project to do. I have some left over from the jelly roll, they might be so cute to tie it on to flip flops too! the whole time I was working on this, my daughter kept asking, "Is this mine?" or "Is it done yet?"



Here you go, honey. They are all yours, I just wanted to make them. Now my curiosity is satisfied.

I love those. My daughter used strips of fabric to that once.
I found your blog yesterday through another blog you were featured on U create. Your quilt inspired me to make a little activity quilt. If I can figure out how to get your quilt on my blog, will that be ok?
