Just about the only perk of living in a miserably hot oven of a city, is that you can wear flip flops almost year round. When other parts of the country get to experience Fall (what does that look like again?), summer clothing and flip flops go on the clearance rack here in the city that never cools. I’m finally embracing Arizona’s weather, especially when that means I get to shop. I recently found a pair of boring brown flip flops in the clearance pile and thought I would do a little embellishing. This is what I came up with.
Step 1: Cut fabric into a 1.5 x 18 inch (that is 1/2 yard) strip. The longer your strip, the bigger your flower will be. I used my rotary cutter but scissors will work just fine. You can tear the fabric for a shabby chic look.
Step 2: Cut a large circle of felt (at least 4 inches wide, bigger than you want your flower to be). These will be used as the base for your rosettes. Not pictured.
Step 3: Fold the strip lengthwise and fold again. (Note to self: Must get a manicure)
