Did you know that flip flops style shoes date back to the ancient Egyptians? The Greeks and Romans wore them, though the Romans wore them with the toe strap between the second and third toes – hard to imagine if you’re used to the current style! Although many prefer sturdier shoes for daily wear, I hope most of you can find something to love in this roundup! Do you wear flip flops? Prefer them plain or prettied up?

    I am not a big fan of flip flops – but I am a big fan of house slippers and the flip flop slippers look like perfect house slippers for the summer! I may give those a try. And I’ll definitely make the wine glass slippers – those are brilliant! Thank you for sharing the links!

    I love the Slippah luggage tags but I think there is something missing from Step 4. Has anyone tried the pattern or is it just me?

      okay, never mind. I think I figured it out. Step 4 should say “Repeat step 1 but do not end off.” They just left the “1” off. Can’t wait to try it.
