Crochet Gladiator Style Flips flops to turn your plain flip flops into fun sandals. Who says flip flops have to be plain or boring? Using some basic crochet stitches and a few new techniques (they’re easy) you can go from plain flip flops to personalized flip flops. Summertime is here and that means warmer weather. Ok, I admit that I live in Chula Vista, California (Suburb of San Diego) and our “Hot” weather isn’t exactly what others might consider hot. Hey, living here we get used to a milder climate but even we get our occasional heat wave.
To beat the heat many of us turn wearing sandals and other warm weather accessories. I admit that I look forward to being able to wear sandals. However, I am not a fan of plain flip flops. I like to customize them a little and jazz them up a bit. In today’s blog post I will share how I turned my plain flip flops into crochet gladiator style flip flops. You can customize by using your own colors, make them all one solid color or combine colors. You can even add beads or a small fringe along the top edge. As always I have provided a free YouTube video tutorial for visual learners. The links appear at the end of the post. I used cotton yarn Peaches & Creme from Yarnspirations. They have a great selection of solid colors and some varigated choices.
