Leave an opening at the bottom and once you have sewn the pieces of fabric, you turn it over. Help yourself with the tip of the scissors to get to the corners.

Now you will make a strip, the measurement will depend on the width of your foot, therefore you must calculate the measurement according to your foot. The strip should be rectangular and approximately 4 cm thick.

Fold the fabric up on the wrong side and sew only the top edge, then flip it over so it is on the right side. You will make 4 of these strips, it would be two strips for each sandal.

STEP 3:

Next, cut the plastic strips of the flip flops with the scissors and remove everything. Then with the pins you will hold the strips.

STEP 4:

Place the crossed straps and secure them to the edge of the flip flop using pins. You should also place the pieces of fabric that you have sewn using the mold at the bottom of the flip flop.

Pay on the edge strips of small pearls to decorate and cover the seam of the strips of the flip flops, and once this last step is ready you can use your sandals.
