Detail of tablet woven flip flop band band

Flipping Hot Flip Flop

Summer, even here in Aberdeenshire I’m searching  for Cool.

Straps on bought flip flops are too tight for my unique feet, so it’s time to tablet weave something better. Prototype version in pinks and purples made form short sample lengths found in the sample box. Matching finished pair in turquoise. Fixed the bands by tying knots in the band. The knot just fits in the round space in the bottom of the sole.

The turquoise version was woven in 3/2/16 mercerised cotton, using 12 four holed tablets, warped circular fashion around an inkle loom. See how little wasted yarn there is when making a circular warp like this.
