when i told Sophie about my idea for these flip-flops i said "they are so cute i might even.... nope not even, but i would love that flower on a heel!"
sadly, i am too vain to rock a flip-flop... if you are gonna expose your toes rock a strappy platform stilleto sandal...
these little beauties are for my little girls (who look super cute in flip flops)
you will need;
pleather (vinyl, leather looking stuff)
scraps of felt
cut 6 rectangles per pair of shoes
trim to look like this
now you have some flower petals!
fold in 1/2 right sides together
fold the ends toward the middle
like this to make an "M"
stitch through the center of your "M"
along the flat edge
make a second "M" and stitch into the first one
then stitch a third "M" into the second..
(just look at the picture ;) )
once they are all together you want to stitch the last one
into the first one like this
then flip and stitch the edges together all the way around so your petals stay put
it should look like this
hot glue a small circle of felt to the back of each flower
cut another circle per shoe and snip in 1/2 way
hot glue this to the flip-flop
then you make a hot glue sandwich felt circle to felt circle
hot glue your button
sorry. no cute pics of my kids feet in these cute shoes... their toenail polish was so chipped and not cute (sophie would have totally killed me for photgraphing less than perfectly manicured toes)
plus Cora decided to ride her scooter barefoot and scraped up her little toes and had three toes wrapped in princess bandaids...
on second thought...
maybe i should have...
it would have bugged the crap out of Sophie!
have a fancy day!
