After tracing Matt's feet, she cut out the sole of the flip flops. Then,
she cut out small "strap" which were a bit longer than the sole so that she

For variety, Cheryl made the straps in a few different ways: 1)
a single strap across the foot (width of strap can vary); 2) parallel straps -
using two to three straps; and 3) 2 straps which criss cross in the middle.
For the criss-cross straps, Cheryl puts an extra stitch in the middle to secure
them in place.

feet out of leather or other materials and then adding a cover to the top of the
soles which would cover up the bottom of the straps and/or a sole on the bottom
to hide the stitching.
For Tyler and friends, follow the same instructions but trace
