Fashion Fix: Flip Flop Revival

Following these weeks of glorious sunshine, over at fixuplookchic we can officially state that it is totally worth spending precious time on upcycling Summer staples as you are GUARANTEED to have a reason to wear them!

How about getting your old faithfuls out from last year and give them the Fix Up Look Chic treatment instead of spending painful weeks breaking in a new pair.

You will need:
  • A pair of plain flip-flops with fabric straps
  • Buttons, beads, ribbon
  • Needle and thread
  • All purpose glue

How to do it:
    1. Plan your design and thread your needle with a long length of doubled up thread 
    2. Starting from the centre, sew your buttons one by one onto the flip-flop. Each time you sew a button, secure it underneath with some extra stitches but DON’T cut the thread. Simply continue to the next button. 
    3. Once you have come to the end of your line of embellishment, secure and finish off as usual on the underside of the flip-flop. Cover these last few stitches with a thin layer of all-purpose glue.
