A cheap and easy way to add some glamour to your flip flops!

We just LOVE making these flip flops! If you've got a scarf or some fabric stashed at home or in your craft kit which you've been waiting to use, then this is the project to dig it our for!

This project is super easy, super quick and adds such a great pop of colour and personality to your summer wardrobe...we have several pairs, they're just addictive to make! If your flip flops rub your feet and make them sore this is also a great way to make them comfy...no more sore spots! Enjoy :)
