To Make you will need
Flip flops (or any flat soled shoe that fits your foot
Corrugated cardboard
Fabric (to cover the sole)
Ribbon
Batting or craft foam (for padding)
Hot glue
Leather ( or more craft foam)
 

                                                     Trace shoe onto cardboard
                               

                 Cut four pieces of cardboard. I cut two going horizontal and two vertical but you could to diagonal too.
                                     

                                                     Glue two soles together making sure the grain crosses
                   
 
   Cut two soles out of leather. I used glove leather scraps purchased on ebay. You can use any material 1/4 thick
                 
                               
              I forgot to take pics of the next steps

           Glue batting or any other cushiony  material to the cardboard.

         Take the material you want to use to cover the shoe and cut around the sole adding a half inch to an inch   depending on how thick the cushion is.

      Glue the fabric to the bottom of the two pieces of cardboard pulling tight. (its OK if its wrinkled)

     Place your foot on the covered sole and measure for the front strap. Cut two

     For the back strap place a long ribbon or other fabric strap under your heel and wrap it around your ankle to figure out how long it needs to be to tie securely. Cut two

  Glue the front and back straps onto the cardboard. I messed around with placement for a while.

  Securely glue the leather to the cardboard, laying down 1/2 inch of glue and then pressing firmly
                             

     Then wait for it to cool strap on and go

These are really cute! 

I wish I would have had this when my kids were little.  They hated the little thing between their toes on flip flops and the other kind of sandals always seemed to be sold out in the size I needed.
