((handmade monday)) foot wrap tutorial



Blogger has a new layout for posting and I'm embarrassed at how long it took me to figure everything out.  Oye. Moving on...


I saw these cutie pie crochet foot ties at free people and thought they were so fun. I don't knit or crochet so today, I've teamed up with Rebecca ((who also lives here in Boulder!)) for a tag-team Handmade Monday! Click here to  head to her blog & read the first part of this tutorial as far as making the triangular granny square needed for this tutorial...and then come back for the completion of your project :) Okay? OKAY!

What you'll need for my portion of this DIY:
Granny Triangles
Leather or a long strip of fabric
Scissors
Two Feet



Step 1:

Cut your strips of leather, fabric, or whatever you've chosen to use as your ties into two pieces that are 30ish inches. **

Step 2:
Place your "little piggy that stayed home" through the top loop. 


Step 3:
Place the tie underneath the triangle and then pull through UP the bottom/side loops.



Step 4:
Tie around your ankle and repeat on other foot. Dance around outside barefoot. Your feet are styling!


I even paired mine with my Ssekos. Because really, how practical is walking around without a sole to protect your feetsies? :)

((options)) crochet a "chain" for the ties // make using a crochet string vs. yarn // braid long strips of fabric to use as the ties //  use any color combination your sweet little heart desires!


love.



**when I wear them with my ssekos, I used two 30 inch ties for each foot
