Yeah, you can definitely wear them around the house. I would be hesitant to wear them outside, because of stepping on glass or nails or rocks, but inside or even at the beach would be fine. Smiley
72  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Flip flop socks! on: May 31, 2009 11:39:03 AM
These are my first socks, and I decided to make them flip flop socks. I didn't use a pattern, except I had one handy to do the heel, since I'd never knit one before. They worked well, except they're pretty warm, which is sort of not what you want when you're wearing flip flops.
Here they are with flip flops:

And here they are without:

Thanks for looking!
73  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / woven book pages bag on: May 31, 2009 11:32:11 AM
Hello! This is a bag I made out of book pages. I bought a falling-apart book from the library to make a bag out of the cover (which I gave away without taking any pictures), and I had a whole book of paper that I didn't want to throw away. so I cut lots and lots of strips of paper and wove them together into a bag. I mod podged the strips together and created several rectangles which I unsuccessfully tried to mod podge together. So I whipped out the duct tape and used that instead. I snagged some handles from a birthday bag, and voila!

74  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Felted messenger bag on: May 31, 2009 11:21:42 AM
Hi everyone! this is a bag I made myself last summer. It's inspired by a pattern in Knitgrrl by Shannon Okey, but the pattern is by Heather Brack. I originally made the strap too long, so I cut a piece off and stitched it onto the front to make a pocket. This was my first attempt at felting, and I must say it went well. hope you like it!

75  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Plastic bag sandals!! on: May 31, 2009 10:05:46 AM
Hi everyone! This is my first post, I'll apologize in advance for any mistakes. I made
these for a friend as a birthday present, and they're made entirely out of plastic bags.
(except the thread). I fused several layers of plastic bags together with an iron, and
used a red bag on top to get red plastic. The biggest problem with them is that the
bottom is pretty flimsy. I sewed two layers of fused plastic bags together and stuffed
them with plastic bag scraps, but I think next time I'll buy a cheap pair of flip flops
and get rid of the straps, then sew the plastic bags around the bottoms of the flip flops.

Thanks for looking!
