I wanted to jazz-up a plain pair of black flip-flops.
Which turned out to be super easy.
Here's how I did it:
I bought some fun ribbon at Hobby Lobby.
Mine is a black lace with tiny square black sequence.
Ribbon & plain flop-flops I measured the length of each side of the strap and then cut my ribbon double the mesured amount. I grabbed some black upholstery thread. And a big needle. And then I went to work sewing the ribbon onto the flip-flop strap. I scrunched the ribbon as I sewed along. You can also stitch along the middle of your thread (with the sewing machine on the longest stitch) and gather up the thread that way.
I love the completed look!
