Flip Flop Fashion Fad

I think I just started a new name for a new craze.  I will be RICH! People will fall all over themselves offering me their abandoned flip flops to remodel for them, paying me mega bucks for the privilege too!

A girl can dream can’t she?

OK, so maybe not the outcome I was looking for, but, practicality and comfort go along way with me.  I love the idea of flip flops, and even don’t mind the thingie between the toes, but I do get annoyed very quickly with blisters caused by the plastic straps rubbing on my feet, especially when you get sand underneath them.

So as is my normal routine… I googled: ‘How to stop your feet from getting blisters from flip flops’ and BAM! a nice tutorial popped up on how to swap the plastic straps out for fashionable fabric.  Oh crap, this means I didn’t think up the idea first – dammit, so much for being rich.

This post is just a tease for next week though as the actual tutorial will be posted then.  I wasn’t 100% happy with how they turned out following the online instructions.  What does that mean?  Aside from making me seem anal.  It means I am making the necessary changes to make MY Flip Flops PERFECT.  I just never seem to let things alone as I am a firm believer that tweaking should be mandatory on just about everything.  Except mouse traps and hand grenades, those are already perfected.

For now, here is the lame finished project…

  1. I love flip flops too. As far as I’m concerned, they are the shoe of choice. Year round…. Doesn’t matter. I am intrigued by the idea of changing out the straps, and look forward to your perfected version.

  2. I used to wear them all the time, but couldn’t stand the blisters that came with them. If it is easy to do, then I will wait and follow your instructions and remake some for the backyard when the patio stones get too hot 🙂
