Instant Flip Flops




I whipped these up this afternoon. Soles are a little too soft - need to work on that (but comfy!). I used quilt batting, cork and leather, and may need to invest in this magic little item that keeps the midsole of the shoe stiff for future endeavours. These little suckers you could sew up out of just about anything... just made a skirt or dress? Need shoes to match? Have a little leftover fabric? Done and done. I think I might be high on contact cement fumes... wheeeeee! Note to self: must buy sewing machine needles that can handle leather. Note to self: leaving notes to self on blog may be mark of insanity.

I am verily impressed! And might I add that Chaz and Marlito are also impressed. They commented to me on your creative nature. I think Marlito was a little jealous; she being a fan of the flip flop.

Marlito can e-mail me her shoe size and favourite colour if she is a big fan of the extra-floppy flip flop...
I enjoy the compliments!
