Flip Flop Paper Pieced Pattern

Tamiko asked us to make Hawaii themed blocks this month in the Cocorico bee.  One of her suggestions was a flip flop. I jumped on that one because I love wearing my flip flops from spring straight through the fall.    I designed this block for her, using Linen Texture from Timeless Treasures for the sole because it looks a bit like cork to me.  The straps are a great opportunity to use bright playful fabrics. I chose a dot from Robert Kaufman.  The background is Stained Glass in Aqua by Dear Stella.  It’s great as a background fabric because it works without looking busy even though it is broken up by a number of seams.  I also feel like it has an Hawaiian vibe…not sure why.

In case you love your flip flops too and  find yourself missing them in the winter, I am adding this pattern to my Etsy and Craftsy shops.  So get out your sewing machine and stitch up some flip flops that you can enjoy year round!  These would look great on a beach tote or made up in different colors for a beach house quilt.
