Decorated Flip Flops

Flip flop season is upon us.  My little girl loves wearing flip flops because she can put them on by herself.  I decided to decorate her flip flops.  Since I like matching her shoes with her outfit I decided interchangeable embellishments would be perfect.

2.  Follow my tutorial for “How to Make Korker Bows” to make the curly bows.

3.  Sew the female fastener onto the back of the korker bow with a needle and thread.

4.  Hot glue a flower embellishment, button, or doodad onto the front of your korker bow.

5.  Snap the korker bow in place and put them on your little girl’s tootsies.

Remove them and change them out for another embellishment.  You could add buttons, rosettes, scrabble tiles, etc. to make custom flip flops.

How stinking cute are those chubby feet on my baby girl?

  2. Look at those cute tootsies! How adorable and what a great idea!

  3. Super cute idea, I have 2 girls that would love some this summer.

  4. I use to make these years ago..I love them..I never thought about using a snap on them though…great idea

  5. What a great idea! I’ve always run from snaps! Never had much success…maybe I’ll give them another try. I wonder if industrial strength velcro would work too? This would be great for adult flip flops too!!
    Thanks for the inspiration!
