I have a really hard time to find shoes since I have very wide foots. I usually can't wear flipflops so I decided to make my own pairs. I got a pair of old flipflops and made a new top to them in my embroideryprogram. Here Is the result, what do you think?
You can download this embroidery on my website Tutorial:
Find a pair of soles from some old flip-flop sandals.
Embroider the flip-flop embroidery (can be downloaded for free from my website) on a fabric. The embroidery is made only for the right foot, so you have to flip it before embroidering the left one!
The large flower in the embroidery is divided into three colours, two pink and one orange. When the machine stops for the change to orange, you should cut away the fabric inside the flower.
Embroider until just one colour remain. Cut away the fabric round the application, before continuing with the last colour (the border around the application).
Find three buttons that fit in holes of the sole. Sew three tubes of the same diameter as the buttons. Close one of the openings with a seam, and turn inside out. Put buttons in the bottom of the tubes and pull the tubes through the holes in the sole, using the button as a stop on the underside. Pin the embroidery to the tubes and make sure the fit is good. Attach using straight seams.
Repeat for the second sole!
