Make a Slipper With a Flip-Flop Sole

This project was a lot easier than I thought it would be, I bought a package of large, craft needles, picked on with a slight curve and simply pierced the sole of the flipflop from the top, coming out half way down the side. I did a blanket stitch with cotton yarn , using it as my first row of loops to start crocheting.I looked at a few patterns and sort of made up my own pattern by combining a few but  here are a few links to help you get the right idea.

The results really surprised people.13892114_1185409858189720_6267692541167242992_n

WARNING. The cheapest flip-flops were too flimsy and the yarn ripped through the holes when I pulled tightly.  The most expensive ones were so dense, I could hardly pierce the sole. So, the best soles for this project were the ones which were in the $2-$3 dollar range rather than $1 OR $6
