New on my Crafty Podcast: How to use a pocket knitter.
Funny and simple to use, the pocket knitter -which is a kind of loom- is an easy and convenient way to make knitted accessories but not exactly knitting.
Hi everyone, this is a cute tutorial originally posted by craft4all. It is written in arabic, but I’m going to transtale this moreless according to the pictures. I will make my own personalized flip flops for the summer :)
1. Cut the plastic straps off of both soles.
2. With sharp scissors, enlarge the strips holes in the wrong side of the sole. Don’t cut all the way through, making the hole bigger……..just make a bigger resting spot for your knot to lay (that you’ll be placing here in later steps). Cut about 1/3 of the way through the thickness of the sole.
3. Make a fabric flat (or round) braid following this steps. Take note that you need to use a semi stretch fabric in order to keep your feet on the flip flops. To determine whether or not the braided section in long enough, wrap the braided knit around the back of your foot and then up over the top of your foot and down through your toes. And then make sure that there is enough to stick through the sandal and then tie in a knot.
4. Now, you need to shove the raw ends down into the hole by the toes of the sandal. You can use a pen (in the “off” position) to shove the ends down in there. The hole will stretch so you can really shove a lot down in there with some effort.
5. You should have both ends coming out the bottom of the sandal. Be sure that the braid isn’t all twisted on the other side.
6. Next, tie really tight knots into each end of the braid and then trim off the excess fabric.
7. Then add a little hot glue beneath your knots and into the crevice of the flip-flop that you dug out earlier.
8. While the glue is still hot, press the knots into the foam sandal and as hard as you can, to really secure the knots in place…….and to force them into the sole of the sandal.
9. Now, cut 2 more strips of your knit fabric and make a loop of fabric on each side of the sandal, including the braided strap as you loop the side strap down in place.
10. After you have both side loops in place, make knots in the bottom and trim off the excess. Glue them in place the same way.
11. Wrap some thread around the toe section over and over again as tight as you could (without breaking the thread) and knot it in place.
And finally, your sandals should now look like this. That’s it. I hope you enjoy this as much as I like :3
