Currently in the making, Im not even sure if i will work, I just loved the flower design and have slowly started working to a pattern which i think makes sense...all will be revealed if i get my act together and crochet some more...it would look really nice as a blanket as well...

Originally I had these flip flops in Lilac but the strap on the back had got looser and looser over time so i decided to replace it. After many different ideas I thought crocheting over some of the straps and creating crocheted cord which i could tie in multiple ways would be good. The straps are simply 6ch in the round with 12 single crochets to cover over the loose end then 80 ch to form the strap... simply thread the strap through the loop around the leather straps of the flip flops and you have straps you can remove if necessary. This could be done on any flip flop.

The first item I've crocheted to the end other than a bag and a few pillows. I'm really pleased with the outcome - initially i was using a pattern from the April 2011 issue of In Inside Crochet yet i didn't have the correct hook size or thin enough yarn so it sort of didn't go to plan...this is why I'm pleased as i made it up as went along only using the technique of fillet crochet and arm design and attachment.
