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

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.


  1. 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?

  2. They are so darling! :D What a great tutorial!!

  3. Where can i buy flip flops like these

    1. I got mine from a dollar store, but you can find them at Old Navy, Walmart, and many other places.

  4. You are so creative. Flip flop is my favorite thing for summer day. Thanks for sharing this flip flop tutorial.
