Raggy Flops Tutorial Part 2

Here is the second part of these flip flops. For this tutorial I started with these flip flops to see how I made the first part you can go Here.

Next I felt we needed a focal point on these wild flip flops.  I wanted to embroider a K on some black fabric to put on a button cover.  If you don't have an embroidery machine don't worry Hobby Lobby sells some cute embroidered letters on button covers.  They are white with black stitching and they also would be cute in the middle of a bow. 
 
Once I embroidered my K's I cut them down to put on my button covers I used adhesive spray to center and keep in place, however a glue gun wuld work great too.

Next I cut 3 various sized circles per flop with my pinker shears. I then used my needle and thread to stitch and pull to gather the circles.

It should turn out something like this. 

Now you are ready to hot glue it all together.

Do the other one, and you have some cute flip flops on your feet. I need to make her an outfit to go with these.  Look for that later.  Have a super weekend!
