Get ready for the warmer weather with these super comfy crochet flip flops.
You have two options for construction. Either use a strong glue (like E6000) to stiffen the double sole so you can wear them around the house. Or, make one sole and glue that to a pair of old flip flops (with the original straps removed) to wear outside.
Either way, they will be way more comfortable than those hard plastic straps you’re used to.

Need Yarn For Your Flip Flops?
I’ve partnered with Craftsy to offer the Ocean City Flip Flops Crochet Kit. It comes with the pattern and all the yarn you need to make a pair of flip flops. There are 24 different colors to choose from to customize the look.* The pattern discount does not apply to the kit.
Two More Kits Too
I’ve also worked with Craftsy to offer these two new “great for beginners” crochet kits. These patterns are only available with these exclusive kits. Click on the pictures to see more details about these on Craftsy.
Both patterns use a classic rib stitch pattern that works up quickly with super bulky yarn.
Perfect for the absolute beginner who wants to try their hand at reading a pattern.
The knit version of the Hearts Abound beanie gets an upgrade with a custom heart shaped pom pom on top. If you follow the blog you know that I am now in love with my Clover Pom Pom maker so I had to add one to this beanie.

The second free pattern was something I asked my Facebook followers about.
I’ve been reading some articles where NICUs are using crochet octopuses to comfort the babies. They believe the tentacles remind the baby of being in the womb with the umbilical cord. Plus the tentacles keep the baby from pulling on the wires they might have connected to their tiny bodies. It is really amazing!
Facebook said, “YES!” when I asked if they would like a pattern and video to help support, so here it is. Of course, I’m not a medical expert, so ask your local hospital if they would like these before donating.
Bonus use though: my cats love this! It’s made in one full piece so no worry of the tentacles coming loose.
I’m very excited for my newest (knit) pattern. It will be ready in a couple of days, but that didn’t stop the good folks of Craftsy to post it to the home page:
It’s so humbling to have my pattern on the front page of Craftsy.
It will be available as a single pattern (with the generous 50% discount I always have with my new patterns) as well as a Craftsy kit (all the yarn needed and pattern included) using the new and yummy Sprightly Acrylic Worsted Yarn by Craftsy.
It should be up within the next few days, so if you are subscribed to my blog, I will let you know when it available. If you aren’t subscribed, you can do so below.
P.S. The crochet version is getting a pattern update to the new improved formatting and will be introduced on the same day (with a discount too of course).
