I’m tired of looking for a particular type of sandal and when I do find it, it’s extremely expensive! What’s better than discontentment to bring out your inner designer? Well I’ll show you a super inexpensive DIY project to make the perfect lace up sandal for the summer. The best part about it? You can change up the fabric whenever you want to have a brand new sandal, each and every time!
LET’S GET STARTED!!!
ON TO THE FUN!!!
Start by folding your fabric in half. Then double your fold to get four nicely laid layers.
Cut (2) four to five inch strips of the fabric. Now separate the pieces you cut out. You should have four equal pieces of your desired fabric. (Note: You may have to pink the edges of any fabric that frays a lot. Mood’s Pinking Shears My silk was ridiculous so this step was mandatory for me.)
Using two strips of fabric, tie a double-knot around the toe divider of the sandal to secure in place.
(Excuse the fraying.) Wrap the remainder of each strip around the thongs of the sandal until each side is completely covered. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to the other sandal. (Optional: The ends of the strips by the toe may be too long for your liking. Here’s your chance to be creative! You can make a bow if you want! I just pinked mine. Lol) & finally just wrap the straps up your leg and……
THAT’S ALL FOLKS!!!
