DIY Baseball Flip Flops

How To Embellish Flip Flops Using Old Baseballs

by Alli

I found the cutest baseball embellished flip-flops over on Pinterest and knew I had to recreate them. My baseball flip-flops turned out adorable. 

There were several ideas running around in my head to try for Hit or Miss Wednesday, but when I saw the picture of the very first link-up to our party, I knew immediately what this week’s project would be – Baseball Flip Flops!

Baseball Flip Flops are not new.  And I understand that these flip-flops won’t appeal to everyone. However, my grandsons are in the middle of their Dixie Youth baseball season and I’m a huge fan.  I’m the fan with the “that’s my grandson out there” t-shirt on. 

It’s the first year my oldest grand has pitched, so I’ve been a little nervous this season. He also plays shortstop. I’m more comfortable with him playing shortstop.

Actually, this is a very easy project. If I can make baseball flip-flops, so can you!

I’m going to wear my new baseball flip flops to the grand’s baseball game tonight and I can’t wait for them to notice them (and they will – they notice everything).

How To Make Baseball Flip-Flops 

I knew it! My flip-flops are a big hit!  

I don’t see myself wearing these flip-flops anywhere except the baseball games, but that’s what I made them for.

You can find the inspiration for my latest Hit or Miss project here!  Make sure you watch the video. It’s awesome!

Note:  I have to admit that I was a little concerned about cutting out the baseball petals. And I confess that my cuts are not as perfect as the ones from the instructional video, but it’s all good. And I love how my flips turned out!

Alli, I think these flip flops are adorable and perfect for baseball games! I would have loved to have these when my son was playing baseball and maybe someday I’ll have a grandson playing little league! Thanks for sharing them and I totally love your hit or miss! 🙂

Thanks, Cindy! They were a big hit with the grands when I wore them to their game a few nights ago. Now my daughter (their mom) wants a pair! 🙂

I was concerned because I’ve never been good with scissors. At least I finally saw the inside of a baseball. 🙂

Those look good… do look like a lot of work.. I’d have to have my husband cut them.. I am too clumsy and would cut my finger off.

I’m not great with scissors, but these were fairly easy to make.

I don’t wear flip flops, but the grand does. And wouldn’t a matching pony tail band be cute?

How cute are these!! Especially since I live in Atlanta and the colors are perfect for the Braves!! Great post!!

Reply
Alli May 8, 2014 - 7:43 am

Go Braves! I’m from GA and lived in Atlanta back when I was in my early 20’s, single, . . . I grew up with a baseball coach dad and spent many days watching the Braves play (back in the old stadium). Those were the days. 🙂
