    Take 3 more pieces of yarn, this time little smaller in length. Make a loop in them and insert them inside the three holes of the flip flops.
  • Insert the braided yarn in the top most hole and draw the left strand in the left side hole and the right strand in the right hole.

  • Take another smaller rectangular size of jeans material, place your feet on the sole of the flip flop and cover the feet using the jeans. Now you get the exact idea of the size of the material you want to stick as the strand.
