    How do you do it? Inquiring minds that dislike plastic on the top of flip flops would love to know!!

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    So cute! I paid $12 for a pair like this at Penneys. Here's a link I found with directions to making a pair.

    I used this but sewed the fabric into tubes so no raw edges

    Heather, I'm "old", so we called them thongs when I was growing up. They weren't nearly as much a part of our wardrobe as they are now. That's all anyone wears now, lol.

    Thongs yes I remember when thongs were something you put on your foot not an undergarment. You must know what pedal pushers are too. Lol

    I'd seen these awhile back, forgotten about them. I, too, remember them as thongs & yes, I do remember peddle pushers!

    I do! And crop tops too! I used to call those flip flops 'thongs' when our kids were little. Even then they thought I was ridiculous.

    Thanks for the link. All the GDs live in flip flops (called them thongs in my day too). May have to try this one or better yet since school is almost out may have them do their own. At least the younger ones. Three of them are all grown-up.

    I still call them "thongs" the kids and grandkids just laugh at me. Didn't "pedal pushers" become capri's?

    By the way the "flip flops" with the fabric look so much more comfortable....I can't wear the flip flops with the plastic it hurts the toes.
    Got-to Love those Dachshunds!!!!!

    Great idea! I'm going to make one since I can't wear the ones with the plastic thong part.

    I don't wear flip-flops, don't even own a pair. But, I call my daughter the 'Flip-flop Queen', she wears them all the time. The next time she comes to visit, I will make her a pair of these.

    I still call them thongs. I guess I don't know any better. I think the younger crowd call some underwear, thongs.

    These are really cute but won't the knots on the bottom pick up a lot of dirt.
