I could not decide which pair to wear, so wearing them all!!   Grin


The bottoms are textured like real flip flops.



For those interested:
I cut out small flip flop sole with index card and cut around it instead of like she did with bent cookie cutter.  I thought perfection in my shoes by flipping the card sole over for left and right shoe.  I made my canes, placed slices onto clay sheet med thickness for ALL the soles,(roll roll roll flat) cut around card soles.  I put three holes for strap placement and baked them flat.  After baking I arranged my wires with crimps behind each hole after adding beads.  (two bead at toes join the wires then split with 6 seed beads on each wire then thru the other two holes)  Use the card sole to cut around two more soles per shoe for middle and bottom layers.  I used multi colors for layers.  I textured the bottom cut outs before assembly.  I stacked the two remaining soles to help "bury" the crimps inside.  Pinch gently the soles as to not mess up your bottom impression.  I had the impressions more messed up to give them a worn out sole in the areas I notice wearing out first on my real flipflops.   Roll Eyes
I used figure 8 bent wire over the toe crimp but between first and second layers to have a bail out the tippy top.  Bake flip flop again.
  Charm your charming charms on a chain.   Cheesy   Cool

Thanks so much  HippieKender for findin the original tute for US!!   Kiss

OOOOOO thanks for the info  loukr!  I will read the rules and see if I can.....

 HippieKender--I missed that episode, I am HUGE That's Clever fan.  I just gave these a good guess, I wonder if they are made the same way....hmmmm.....Did they use beads for straps too?
