I don’t know about you . . . but in the summer I practically LIVE in my flip flops! And this summer, we moved to Arizona so I’m loving my flip flops even more this year 🙂 If you get a little tired of your ‘plain’ flip flops every day, consider sprucing them up a bit with some fabric (or trims as in this tutorial).

 

For this easy-peasy project you will need – –

  • a pair of flip flops ($1 at Old Navy or Wal-Mart)
  • fabric (1 Fat Quarter)
