Gift presents for kids: Decorated Flip Flops tutorial

Fashion, Holiday & seasonal crafts, Making flower  |  September 21st 2011  |  0 Comment

Flip flop season is upon us.  My little girl loves wearing flip flops because she can put them on by herself.  I decided to decorate her flip flops.  Since I like matching her shoes with her outfit I decided interchangeable embellishments would be perfect.

2.  Follow my tutorial for “How to Make Korker Bows” to make the curly bows.

3.  Sew the female fastener onto the back of the korker bow with a needle and thread.

Remove them and change them out for another embellishment.  You could add buttons, rosettes, scrabble tiles, etc. to make custom flip flops.

How stinking cute are those chubby feet on my baby girl?
