My fashionable take on the oldest footwear man has ever known, the Flip flops. They are popularly called Thongs in Australia and Jandals in Newzealand. The earliest known flip-flops were made from plant fibers or wood.
It is one of the most common types of footwear in developing countries as it is inexpensive, often less than a dollar. Flip flops have really caught on as a trend and are as ubiquitous as the athletic shoes. You see kids wearing them to the beach or the pool all the time. It gives you that ‘out to have fun’ feeling.
I had never thought that babies could wear flip-flops as it would tickle their toes! I saw one of my friend’s baby wearing it at 3 months and was totally bowled over by it. It was the cutest sight I had ever seen. This design stems from my memory of that day.
I prefer the version without the flowers but if you opt to make a pair of white flip flops then the flowers would add a splash of color. If you are going for the one without flowers choose two bright coordinating colors to make it fun and vibrant. If you are making the sun hat, make the flip-flops in matching colors to spice up a simple outfit. Sun hat Pattern has to be purchased separately.
