I know what you might be thinking. DIY shoe, really? I know, sounds weird. But, they are really quite easy and turned out pretty darn cute. Ok, enough talk, let me show you. Espadrilles anyone?
Perfect for the weather that is right around the corner. It was 65 degrees here yesterday! We grilled for dinner! Granted there is probably more snow in my future, but I can pull out these babies on those sunshiny days. How do you make a DIY shoe of your very own?
- flip flops with thick soles
- xacto knife
- gorilla glue
I started out with one of these. Yep, an old flip flop sole. I bought these years ago, but the straps rubbed so I only wore them like 5 times. They need to be the thicker ones so that you can slice the sole to place your fabric (aka old t-shirt).
Follow the fabulous tutorial here.
The only thing I did differently for my DIY shoe was my strap hole did not go all the way through the flip flop so instead of securing the strings with knots through the sole, I inserted them in to slits on the sides and glued them like the thicker straps.
