Here’s an idea for the next time you blow out your flip flop in Margaritaville. Don’t throw it away. Instead, use your colorful bias tape to fix it!
Gather up your cheap or broken flip flops and let’s get started!
Cut off the flip part (for lack of a better word).
Thread one piece of bias tape through the hole.
Now, thread the next piece through the same hole. Pull tight and trim the ends of each knot.
Place one washer under each of the side holes and thread the bias tape in through the top.
Try on your flip flop and pull the bias tape through so it fits perfectly. Tie a knot in each piece to hold it in place and trim the ends.
Use some super glue on the end of each knot to keep hold it in place and to keep it from unraveling.
Now you can search for your lost shaker of salt in style.
