Day 14: Flip-Flop Refashion

Welcome back for the 14th project!  We're nearly half-way done.  I can't believe how fast this month is flying by!  Today's project was a no-brainer for me to choose.  Here in Arizona we {at least I} wear flip-flops year round and I am always looking for cute ones.  But let's be honest -- flip-flops are flip-flops.  I'm not gonna' shell out a lotta' cash for them.  The "Knot So Hard" flip flops from Destri at The Mother Huddle are very cute.  I had some flip flops that I got for $1 and some cute Amy Butler fabric so I gave that project a try.  Here is the result:

Cute and casual.  Pretty enough, I guess, but I had my heart set on those ruffly ones.  I studied the picture and set out to re-create the idea as best I could with some silver double-faced satin ribbon in my stash.  Those ones turned out EXACTLY how I had hoped {though not like the original}:

Alas, I can't tell you how they came to be.  It was a whole lotta' trial and error.  Pinching and stitching and gluing and pressing.  And maybe some mild cursing.  Because I love you all {and because I still want to make those other ones in the original pin} I did some investigating and found the tutorial at Make It and Love It.  Now I need to get another pair of flip flops!  In the mean time, I'll share a handy pantry organizing project with you tomorrow.  Have a great day!
