Materials For Sarong:

  • Required fabric = your hip measurement + 36”.
  • example your hip measurement = 32” + 36”= 68” or 1 7/8 yards Iron and ironing surface
  • Sewing machine or heat activated adhesive tape

Instructions For Sarong:

  1. Wash the fabric to allow for any shrinkage that might occur.
     
  2. Trim off the selvage edges of the fabric. Press the rough edges on all four sides of the fabric under 1/4”. Press folded edge under 1/2”to create a hem.
     
  3. Secure the folded edges with a regular sewing machine. If you don’t sew, create a “hem” on folded edges with heat activated adhesive tape. Follow the package instructions for the heat activated adhesive tape.

 

Materials For Flip Flops:

  • 1/4 yard fabric
  • 1 pair flip flops
  • Scissors

Instructions For Flip Flops:

  2. Tie the strips in a knot around the straps of the flip flops.
     
  3. Continue to add strips alternating sides until you have the flip flop fringe as full as you choose. Trim fringe with scissors to desired length.

I love the idea! I search the discount stores but do not find the color, style, or material I might like and the price is costly for a cover-up! I can't wait to make one for myself. I would like to shorten mine a bit though so I will let you know how it turns out ok. Thanks again! Tina
