Here is another fun project that we did on our family reunion vacation. I picked up a pair of flip flops for each of us girls at the dollar store. I also picked up a small sewing kit, some ribbon and a package of multi-colored beads at Walmart.
We wrapped the ribbon around the flip flop straps, attaching the ribbon by sewing it at the bottom.
I did a running stitch along the back side of the ribbon just to help it stay in place.
On my flip flops I made a little bit of a weave a the top to give me extra room to sew on my beads.
Then I sewed the beads onto the ribbon, stitching the ribbon into place at the same time just to make it a little more stable.
I would recommend getting a glue gun to start the ribbon on the flip flop. We didn’t have one, so we had to make do. I also think that we could have used the glue gun for some of the beads. It would have gone a lot faster.
Oh man do I need a pedicure, but here is what they looked like when I finished.
Each person made up their own style.
It was a lot of fun, and we ended up with some pretty cute flip flops.
