    Well I 'stole' this idea here :D then found the pattern online and in the FP mag...
    only I just wanted a small throw/lap quilt for my grand-daughter who's a flip flop freak....

    no batting - I tied it onto a piece of terry cloth to make it really usable for her (she lives in Florida).... I already told her it WILL shrink and to NOT let the dog have puppies on it 8) :mrgreen:

    Really really cool! Much better than mine. I think I need to make a new one with more "artistic freedom."

    I love it!!!! I think I have a thing for flip flops now.
