Laura needed new flip flops. So I made some. They were super-simple and fun to make.

I still need to add clinching nails around the sole and brass rivets where the two straps come together. Then I'll cut the extra strap length off. I ordered nails and rivets this morning, so I'm on hold until they arrive.

The custom-cut soles are molded to fit her arches and the strap isn't glued so it can be tightened and re-fastened when it stretches. 

After I give hers one more coat of neatsfoot oil I'm going to make a pair for myself.
