Every girl needs some ruffly purple flip flops for summer! Let me start by telling you I wasn't planning on purchasing purple flip flops when I made my early morning trip to Old Navy last Saturday. I was a few minutes away from buying a yellow pair instead when the friend I was shopping with said, "Heather, I have never seen you wear yellow. You wear a lot of purple. Buy purple!" She was right. I like yellow a lot but I don't have a lot of it hanging in my closet. I went with purple instead and I'm so happy I did! I love my new ruffly purple flip flops!
Optional: Sewing Machine (it makes this project really fast but you could ruffle your ribbon by hand if you don't have a machine)
I started by sewing a basting stitch down the middle of one long piece of ribbon (I didn't measure the length before I started sewing - see photo above for length of actual ribbon used).
I pulled the thread to turn that ribbon into a pretty ruffle.
I used a paintbrush to apply a layer of Fabri-Tac to the flip flop strap.
Then I glued the ribbon to the strap and repeated on the other side.
I used scissors to trim the ribbon at the edge of the straps.
Repeat for the other shoe and now you have a fun new pair of flip flops! This entire project was done with supplies I already had at home aside from the flip flops and took only 30 minutes to complete!
