Summer is winding down, which is sad, but it does have its upsides.  One thing to look forward to is the oncoming barrage of summer clothing clearance sales!  All those things you've been admiring for months will get a lot cheaper, and even the things that were already affordable will be even more so.  Like flip flops!  Make sure you grab a few pairs, because Ashley from Make It and Love It is working on a whole series of flip flop makeover tutorials, starting with these strappy numbers made using recycled t-shirt fabric.  The combination of the fabric and the braiding makes the strap a little stretchy, so it will stay snugly and comfortably around your heel all day.  [how to redo a pair of flip flops with braided t-shirt straps]

Project estimate:

  • Flip flops, on hand or $1 and up
  • T-shirt fabric, on hand or $1 and up
  • Hot glue, on hand

Total:  Free and up

    While that looks like a cool and cute idea, I really can’t imagine spending the time or extra money when flip flops are currently selling for 1.00 or less.

    @Katrina missed the reason for wanting a variety of designs – hard-to-find-size flip flops. I am going to revive some broken toe flip flops with this idea, plus I may try wrapping the plastic with t-shirt material or braided fabric on a slightly larger size and adding the heel to help with stability down my rental’s back steps!
