I bought my flip flops at Old Navy because I think they have the most comfortable flip flops, they are cheap (2 for $5) and they come in all sorts of fun colors! The fabric I chose is no longer available, but you could easily use your favorite cotton fabric or even scraps of what you already have.
How to Make Fabric Flip Flops
One: Remove the plastic do-hickeys that come on the flip flops.
Two: Start with a strip of fabric that is about 1 inch wide and about 10 inches long.
Tip: Don’t cut this piece, simply snip about an inch into your fabric and then pull and tear. So much easier!
Three: Fold strip in have and poke up through the bottom of the top center hole – where your toes go, but don’t tie the knot yet.
Four: Tear a piece of fabric that is about 4 inches wide and about 25 inches long (this will give you lots of extra but that is ok – rather too much than not enough).
Five: Thread one end of the 4-inch strip through one of the bottom holes on the flip flop base and tie a tight not.
Six: Pull the 4-inch strip through the 1-inch strip’s loop.
Seven: And back down to the hole on the other side of the flip flop.
Eight: Fit the flip to your foot by pulling on the straps to where it fits you comfortable and tight enough to stay on.
Nine: Tie the strips of fabrics into knots and trim off the excess fabric.
Ten: Hot glue around the knots to make them just a bit more secure into the holes of the flips flops.
Because there are already holes in the flip-flop bases the knots fit pretty well inside and you can’t feel those knots when you are walking.
