Fun in the Sun flip flop makeover

I saw a contest for flip flop makeovers here and decided  had to give it a shot.   Now I don’t usually wear flip flops but I did live in sandals this summer.

I decided to use two things I have been collecting on my flip flops.   Old game pieces and leather jackets.


A favorite summer saying seems to be “fun in the sun” so what a perfect theme to bring to a pair of flip flops.


I cut out two red suede scalloped circles, two red polyester scalloped circles (jacket lining) and four ivory leather scalloped squares with my Big Shot.


I singed the edge of all of the red pieces and two of the ivory pieces.   This gave a little more dimension to the pieces.  I used fabric glue to attach them together.  The lining piece I sort of scrunched up to make it look like a flower of sorts.


I was able to spell out “Fun in the Sun” with some old Scrabble Crossword Cube Game pieces.  I picked up the game this summer for a steal….. 50 cents!   Wow, I loved the game cubes and knew when I saw them I would find a great use for them! 

I taped the game pieces on the red suede circle around the flower center.


I think the game cubes, suede and leather make a perfect addition to a pair of flip flops.  What a conversation piece.  I think I would be ok bringing attention to my feet when I’m wearing these as they cover up a lot of my foot.  

What do you think?   Could I become a flip flop person??
