Diy Craft Projects For Adults. | Watch How Easily She Makes A Pair Of Crochet Sandals!

We had a big outdoor party that was approaching soon, and I needed some new sandals  for the event (diy outdoor bar). This was going to be the event of all events where a many of us show up wit diy craft ideas to sell to each other. You can get home insurance tips and tricks, diy carbon filter for micro grow, tricks to raise your credit score in addition to your usual diy shop storage ideas, popular diy garden projects just to name a few. Now I wanted to be able to bring my crochet making skills to the table because I wanted some investors and what better way to showcase your product than to wear the damn thing! Crochet sandals with flip-flop soles fall into the category diy craft projects for adults. I love whenever I get the opportunity to make something that I can enjoy. Since almost everything diy I make is for my kids or the house. So I just finished going through some spring cleaning tips and tricks, and now it is time for me to do something that would compliment my clothes for this glorious summer weather and business extravaganza (diy fashion projects).

You will need these items to make these crochet sandals (diys you can do at home):

A pair of rubber flip-flops
Cotton yarn (in two colors dark brown for the soles and a lighter color for the heel and toe covers)
An awl or sharp tool for poking holes
Two different sized crochet hooks
Tapestry needle
scissors

Firstly cut the thongs off of the flip-flops, make sure that the tools are sharp, I used my scissors before on some diy area rugs, and I think it dulled the edges a bit, so I struggled to cut the thongs off and ended up with sore fingers. Anyway, so now that you have removed your straps, keep the stoppers that were under the flip-flops we will glue these back on. Take your awl or stabbing tool and from the hole that was made by the thong close to the heel start making quarter-inch holes from the sides into the top of the flip-flops all the way around the heel. Using your B or C sized hook, grab the dark colored yarn for your sole and start by creating a slip knot and gently start by pulling it from the top of the flip-flop through the first hole. Now you will begin to chain linking and repeating the process until the entire heel is done. When you get to the last chain stitch, you will bring out the lighter color yarn and start single stitching around the heel until you get to the other side of the sole. Repeat this process until you have a high enough coverage for the heel. Now it’s time to chain a 71 stitch cord on each side of the heel covering; this is what we will use to tie the sandals to our ankle. Now it’s time to start the toe cover, you will do that same stitch as before just to the front of the sole and only on the sides, not all the way around. Next, choose how you want to make your toe cover, I decided a straightforward rectangular design and used my tapestry needle to attach them to the sole. Don’t worry if this explanation is a bit confusing you can see step by step how I did it in my online tutorial. I hope you liked my project and share it with others!

So easy fun diys are not always quick, this sandal is going to take patience and some crochet skill. I checked in with my grandmother to make sure I was doing it right!

Time to make the toe cover!

I crocheted this for about 15-20 minutes tops. It was the quickest part of the job! Try not to rush through the crochet covering parts you don’t want the whole thing to unravel because you missed a stitch.

I made a mistake and I had to re-thread the entire side.

Remember when I told you guys to take your time? Well,l I was going a bit too fast and ended up having to take out the stitching and starting over. I made one stitch to tight and it created a bump and that had to be removed.
