crocodile flip flops

Up cycle your old flip flops from last year, you know the ones that are missing beads or gems or ones that are boring!!You can also purchase ones that are meant to be embellished for about $4 at Michaels ares and Crafts stores!

Flip Flops any sizes, 
Size G crochet Hook
Yarn needle

 Yarn -  I used redheart Botique Midnight, feel free to use any 4 ply. If you are going to be wearing these at the beach or to the pool I highly recommend Lilly's Sugar and cream Cotton yarn or any 100% cotton yarn.

To start Please check out my entry on how to do the crocodile stitch vertically
Learn how to make a vertical row of Crocodile Stitches

Start make making one row that fits along the band of the side nnext to you big toe. for size xs I did 6 stitches then make another row with 2 more than the first ( we want so overlaping. Leave very long tails for sewing!

Begin to sew by the heel side of the strap. DON'T sew around the dc's but just grab part of the yarn. Sewing to tightly will misshape your stitches.

repeat this with the next side too and then sew the bottom of your longer row on top of your shorter one and WOW  you have VERY QUICK and VERY EASY flip flops!!!

  1. Good morning!!! So I am working on this project for my flip flops. I don't understand the sewing part. How do I sew (or attach) the yarn to the flip flops?

    1. Good Afternoon!! What I did was left a long tail and placed the scales on top of the flip flop band and sewed them by weaving the yarn under back and forth and going through each side of the scale. How that make sense?

  2. I'm using your pattern for a demo at Michaels. The pictures are on the first post of my new blog, I think they turned out really cute. My daughter is coveting them, but they have to go on display!

  3. I added the completed flip flops to my demo post. Hope you like them.

  4. These look great! I think I will make a pair for my daughter!

  5. My daughter has been calling her flip flops Man-dles mabey she would like a surprise . I think I can get this done before she GATS off work !

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook. Make a magic circle Round 1 Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join. Sides and top of cross Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides. Bottom of the cross When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center. On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel. If thread isn't your thing check out this great bookmark Stitch 11 made from my Cross Bangle pattern! Check out the Stitch 11 post here
