If you do stuff, stuff gets done.......
Photo was taken around Christmas 1962 when I had just turned 5. That is my pretty mom behind me. She made the cross stitched clock on the buffet. The stocking with my name on it was made her mother and delivered to me before my first Christmas even though I was not even a week old. My apron was made by great grandmother. I come from a long line of homemakers who did stuff and got lots done.

$1 flip flops dressed up with help from Pinterest

This $1 pair of pink flip flops is from Walmart, the ribbon is 1 1/2 inch wide and I just hand sewed it to cover the straps. The bows and buttons were hand sewn and then secured with a dab of E6000 glue.
The second pair were from Dollar Tree. They are not as thick as the Walmart one.
I followed this tutorial pretty much exactly as written.

I have been wearing them around the house and they are very comfy. I wonder how sturdy they are and if they will hold together, so far so good! 

If you want to fancy up flip flops, just search on Pinterest for flip flops DIY. There are many many cute ideas.

  3. Those are really cute. Hmmmm, I have 3 new pair of Walmart flip flops and ribbon. Maybe I can do something fashionable and put off the official cleaning of the refrigerator until tomorrow. Excuses spring eternal!

  4. Those are cute! I personally cannot stand flip flops--that thing between the toes drives me crazy--so the second one with the "thing" removed looks like something I could wear!
