While shopping at Dollar Tree for my Crafty Shark Week projects, I saw these stuffed animal sharks and decided that I really needed to make them into funny flip-flops. I think “flip-flops” is my Shark theme this year (see my flip-flop wreath and my flip-flop shark sculpture!). This is a quick and easy craft that you can make using stuff from the dollar store. Not a shark fan? Use any stuffed animal to create funny, furry flip-flops!
- A pair of flip-flops, $1
- 2 stuffed toys, $2
- Needle and thread, on hand
Well, the instructions are pretty simple…
1. Place a shark on top of a flip-flop, and attach by sewing around each strap, and into the shark.
I did a few quick stitches to get the shark placed correctly on the flip-flops, then went back over my first stitches to reinforce.
Don’t sew the shark all the way to the bottom of the straps. Leave at least 2-3″ on each strap for the foot to slide in comfortably.
The sharks can just sit right up on top of your foot!
Kind of like summer slippers! My son wore these to the grocery store and caught the attention of some little girls who thought the flip-flops were cute.
And I bet they dry your feet off when you get out of the pool!
