I have these flip flops that I really like, (because they give me an extra 1 1/2 inches in height) but they were getting a bit ratty. I stumbled upon this cute pair on Pinterest, and I decided I could make it with my pair of flip flops! So, here’s how!
So, I used one 150 yard ball of yarn. Make sure it won’t bother you at all; some yarn can itch pretty badly.
First, I took six LONG strands of yarn. I’m really sorry, but I don’t know how long they were. I never measured. Using those, I wrapped them around the top part of the flip flop. If anyone knows what that’s called, please comment! I didn’t look it up. 🙂
Next, I cut another set of six strands, but not nearly as long. The length all depends on how and how many time you wrap it. I’ll show you how I did mine, though I might come up with a better way, the more I wear them. If so, I’ll do another post. 🙂 Here is how I did it:
First, tie a knot at the bottom of the part that goes between you toes. (I could still use a name for that!)
Then, wrap it around.
Bring it underneath the strap on top.
Put the flip flop on.
Wrap it around your ankle clockwise.
Then, bring the end of the yarn UNDER the strand going up your foot. This is a pretty bad picture of that. Sorry!
Wrap it rap it around your ankle COUNTER CLOCKWISE.
When end you have wrapped as many times as you want, you need to tie it off. I haven’t found a very good way to do this yet. Still working on it… Anyways, I usually wrap it around the yarn in the back, and tie a knot. It never turns out right, though.
Then, just tuck the end behind the rest of the yarn back there. It holds for a little while, at least!
Do the same thing for the opposite foot, except wrapping it around your ankle counter clockwise first, and clockwise second. If you have ANY questions, please comment!
