Beach sandals

Here is my beach sandals’ pattern at last for those who asked me during my summer holiday. It is another version of the flip flop transformation.

I have added chain strings that can be tied around the ankle, because I found that some flip flops are looser around the foot bridge than others. This means that the triangle tends to bundle as you walk. The strings keep the triangles in position.

Hope you enjoy it.
