Title: Reused Broken Flip Flop
Post by: ukiqio on February 12, 2013 12:30:43 AM
Last week is the time for my old flip flop to retired.
But I don't want to let it go to the trash can ;p
And when I look at pinterest, I saw this lovely and brilliant post  (http://floofle.wordpress.com/2007/04/02/yay-recycling/)
I was inspired. Yes! I can save my old flip flop and use it again!





Thanks for looking :D

Very cool.  Is this knit or crochet?  And how did you attach them to the rubber shoe.

Those look great! I'll have to remember this for when I wear out a bunch of flip flops this summer!

Thanks! :D (Hmm..now I think that I'm a salvage girl ;p )

Thanks. It's crochet. Basically, I did the same way as on the blog that I'm inspired from
(please check the link above). I sew on the sole with blanket stitch using a big embroidery needle, then I crochet on it.

Yes, you have to XD This is such a great recycling project!
And thanks for your compliment :D
