My tutorial for Huarache-type sandals with cork soles is the most popular post on my blog with thousands of visitors – yay! – thank you all! 😀 Today I made another Huarache-type shoe: Huarache bathing shoes with flip-flops and polypropylene cord.
Polypropylene is perfect for bathing shoes because it doesn’t absorb water, it’s lightweight and the color doesn’t bleed when it gets wet in contrast to nylon. I also use polypropylene cord to make dog leashes.
- polypropylene cord
Cut off the plastic straps.
Tie an overhand knot on one end of the cord, and thread the cord through the three holes like here -> How to tie Huarache Sandals.
And your DIY bathing shoes are finished. Wasn’t that quick and easy? 😀
Here you’ll find my tutorial for Edwardian or 1920s bathing shoes.
Here I’m wearing the bathing shoes together with my DIY hiking skirt.
