I got a pair of flip flops for one of my daughters on whoopdwhoop and they inspired me.
I found some cute fabric and started with this...
I tore my fabric into strips about one inch wide. I didn't measure, I just tore to make them look about the same. Also, I tore my strips because I wanted my flowers to be frayed on the edges.
Then, I ran a gathering stitch along one side and gathered the fabric up. I took that gathered fabric and formed a circle to make my flowers. I stitched them together on the back and then took tiny stitches through all of the layers so that they would stay in form. I used hot glue to attach a button in the center to cover my gathering stitches.
Here they are all done...
(don't let the shadows fool you, the flops are brand new)
I'm thrilled with the way they turned out. Do you think I can convince Dax that I need something new to wear with them?
