This blog has a link to Gap's facebook page which posted this flip-flop makeover using a t-shirt.
I have been wanting some gladiator-style sandals for two summers now, but haven't found the ones I liked in my price range.
I picked up a pair of flip-flops at the dollar store and dug an old shirt out of my scrap bag. The flip-flops were in desperate need of a makeover and the shirt was one I had bought ages ago. It had been on sale so I picked it up for cheap, but it never really looked good on me.
I didn't get it exactly right the first time. I had to rip the first one out and re-do it. Luckily, the thin thong meant that I needed less fabric to wrap the shoe with.
My final product, a no-sew flip-flop makeover:
|I wrapped them differently than the picture the first time. Here is the re-do.|
Total time: 1 hour
Final verdict: My feet do not have any photogenic qualities. But besides that, I like them. I can't wait to try them out. I am a little wary that they might fall apart when I wear them out because I used some thin knit fabric and hot glue on dollar store sandals, but I guess we will see. Other than that, I am happy with how they look. I think they are super cute and they were pretty easy to make. Extra bonus: They were definitely within my price range.
