Flip Flop Dress-Up

Once I saw someone in a pair of flip flops like this, I knew I HAD to give it a try myself!  If you have seen previous blog entries of mine, you know that I LOVE the rosettes.  And, what a cute way to dress up a pair of run-of-the-mill plastic flip flops!  I have three pair on the way from Old Navy, that I got for $2.50 a pair, so when I get those and pick the right fabric, I will have some of my own to show off, but for now, I made a pair for my little fashionista.  We got these at Target today for $2...

Bring on some cuteness!  I used a shirt that I was getting rid of, in turquoise and made my rosettes.  I used a hot glue gun to adhere them to the flip flop, then I cut strips of the t-shirt and glued (fabric to fabric) underneath to reinforce them. 
While I think they are cute as a button just like this, I decided to rummage through my fashion jewelry and I found an old rhinestone bracelet that I never wear.  I took it apart and added some bling to the middle.  Aren't they just so darn cute??
She digs 'em!  :-)
