Transform your old slippers..
My only "elegant" flip flops are too old and hurt my poor feet, but I have no money to spend in shopping.
So I decided to recycle these flip flops and create a more glamorous pair.
I want make a very comfortable slippers, so I chose the felt as the sole of the slipper (because it's very soft and easy to work) and I carefully worked the strips of fabric: inside the strips I put a strip of "adhesive fabric" and a strip of cotton fabric to make them more resistant and soft and doesn't hurt the foot.
This is my personal choice. Steps 6,7 and 8 are not obligatory :)
Notice: the "adhesive fabric" is a fabric with an adhesive side and you glue it to another fabric with hot iron. It's used by dressmakers to make more rigid and resistant the fabrics but I don't know the technical term in english, so I call it "adhesive fabric". I'm sorry!
