Well, I guess I'm going to have to post this pattern today because I keep getting this sent to my wall, messaged, and tagged to me on Facebook :D  I actually did see this prior, via Pinterest and kind of skipped over it, but everyone else seems to really love it!  You can easily turn your flip flops into crochet slippers!  Basically, you just poke holes into the flip flop foam to create a border to crochet into.  (I used a large curved upholstery needle) They are super cute, and the only reason that I had skipped over it, was because I have done it before and the result was great at first... but they didn't hold up.  The foam ripped all of the way through in several places and created holes.  Maybe I used a bad quality flip flop, maybe I was too rough on them, maybe, several maybe's... that being said, maybe I will have to try again and see what happens.  They are pretty adorable, so it's worth it to give it a shot, and nice that someone has explained it out perfectly so you have a great guideline to go by, so good luck!
