Craft Trends: Flip-Flops

As a Floridian I know that flip-flops are our official footwear, but as summer approached flip-flops are the shoes of the season. Don’t just wear plain old flip-flops; you got add your own personal touch.  You can add seashells or wrap your flip-flops with bright and sassy specialty yarns. Add some bling with craft jewel, sequins, or glitter. The skies the limit when you use your imagination and creativity to celebrate the season of sunshine, going to the beach or lake, and having picnics in the great outdoors.

The origin of the flip-flop isn’t really clear, but most experts feel the flip-flop was part of cultures of China and New Zealand.

Here are some embellished flip-flops to get your creative juices flowing. The term flip-flop came from the sound the shoe makes when the wearer is walking. The flip-flop is any sandal that has no back.
