Hi.

Welcome to the Sunday Project where I share what I make, discover, or just generally enjoy.

Broken Flip Flop Fix

Has this ever happened to you? There must be something about the way I walk because I seem to go through a lot of flip flops this way! Rather than buy yet another pair I decided to get a little crafty and refurbish my old broken ones. Here's how I did it!

What you'll need: 

1. Cutter or scissors

2. Piece of fabric (the one I used was 5" wide by 40" long)

3. Something pointy to push the straps out of the sole and to push fabric through the holes

Step one: Remove the straps from the sole with the cutter and pointy thing.

Step two: With the slipper the right side up, fold the fabric in half and feed it middle bit through the top hole making a loop on the other side.

Step three: Thread the rest of the fabric through the remaining holes.

Step four: Flip it over, tie the bottom two pieces of fabric to the loop you made earlier.

Step five: Trim the excess i bits and you are done!

Good as new. So some things I learned doing this, while the crochet looks pretty it was a huge pain to get through the holes! Something solid and thinner would make things go a whole lot smoother.
