Fabric Flip-Flops… I Tried a Pin

Sharing is caring!

Fabric Flip-Flops are the next addition in my summer series, “I tried a Pin”.    If you’re new here I would love to have you follow me on Instagram and Pinterest to keep up with all my latest projects!  So during the summer I love to actually try out some of those great pins I’ve been pinning away throughout the year.  This one I pinned years ago and I continue to see floating around Pinterest.

Turn $1 Flip Flops into Fabric Flip Flops

Fabric Flip-Flops

Every summer we stock up on flip-flops at Old Navy’s $1 flip flop sale.    I figured it was the perfect time to try out this great craft project.

Cheap flip flops and fabric for your projects

You gather your cheap flip flops and 4 pieces of 4.5” x 24” fabric strips.

You are going to remove the rubber straps.  I used an x-acto knife and carefully  cut them off.

Remove the rubber strap for the fabric

Both ends of the fabric strips need to be cut at an angle forming tips so they can slip through the holes.  My fabric was thick, so it was hard tying the knots off so I cut the strip in half down to the flip flop and then tied it off.

The end result was super cute fabric flip flops and they are super comfy!

  1. OMGoodness! This is such a great idea. I can’t wait to try this but I’m a little confused on how you make the knot. I know this is an old post so if you get this comment, could you let me know? Thanks!

    1. HI Teri ~ The knots pushed into the holes that were in the base of the flip-flop from the plastic strap… so nope, you don’t feel it at all. 🙂

  2. ive got a fun green pair of flipflops lying around with ruined rubber straps… would love to do this on them.. but dont the knots below the flipflops get uncomfortable?

  3. Awesome project and post. Cute polish on the toes, matches fabric very prettily. At first I thought you wrapped the fabric around the straps, etc. on flip flops. Good job. Much more comfortable also. Sometimes the rubber flip flops can be bit uncomfy between toes especially. Happy days

  4. I just attended a wedding and noticed the wedding party lost their heels almost immediately. What a great idea from the bride for her attendants and herself……fancy flipflops to match their gowns
