A pop touch for a summer yukata outfit!
I wanted to make some cute geta to match my pink gingham yukata and pop print hanhaba obi this summer. I worked off a pair of already existing geta from ebay to make this Yamamoto Yumi inspired pair! I had a little cinnamonroll print fabric left over from previous projects to use for the hanao straps.

    Take apart one of the hanao straps. Only take apart one for now as this will help you if you need to look at the other to see how they go back together. if you want to use the original hanao skip to step 13.
