Battle: Flip-Flop

I adore flip-flops.

They are my favorite form of footwear.

I would wear them every warm weather day, if I could.

Technically, I'm not supposed to wear flip-flops to school. It is the one rule I openly break.

You see, we can wear open-toed shoes. But they have to have flowers or jewels or some other kind of shoe bling attached.

I am not one to wear fancy flip-flops. I don't do faux diamonds, patent leather roses, or macramé.

Shocking, I know.

I've flown under the radar all year. But then, a few weeks ago, the higher-ups decided to start cracking down.

Not to go down without a fight, I quickly fancied up my plain Old Navy brand.

I had to make do with what I had on hand. Kindergarten teachers always have construction paper, glitter glue, and yarn.

The elements of shoe bling.

I enjoy the chess game. So the next day I took it up a notch.

I attached some crocheted flowers. They were even coordinated with my outfit.

Recycled yarn version.


Tiny granny squares.

I was short on time. A couple pieces of ribbon would have to do.

These are supposed to be three-petaled flowers. They look more like blobs.

But they served their purpose.
