Tie-up Scarf Sandals {SCARF WEEK}


Day 3 of Scarf Week is upon us! And I’m back with another no-sew tutorial for you. I have a feeling I will be using this tutorial myself for quite some time because the possibilities are kind of endless, and when it comes to accessorizing, more options are always better, right? How about scarf sandals?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASo I know I told you that the scarf bracelet was the easiest thing ever to make? Well then this must be the second! All you need are 3 things:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOk… 4 if you count each flip-flop, but they come as a pair so I only counted them as one!

First, you’ll need to cut your scarf in half lengthwise so you get two big, long strips.


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANow as for how to make this, well get ready for a picture tutorial because explaining this in words would take FOR-E-VER!

SCARF SANDALS TUTORIALRepeat on the other side, then the other flip-flop and voila!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATie those bad boys up around your ankles in whatever way you find to be most comfortable. I tied mine around the back of my ankles first, back around the front and tied a little bow on the side.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPardon my feet… I have a severe hatred of feet because I think they are gross and weird, so taking these photos was BRUTAL for me. Looking at them after was even worse. Does anyone else think feet are strange? Ok let’s not look at my feet anymore please. How about the sandals sans weird little toes?


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOh and I found a way to put them away without the scarf getting all tangled up in itself.  Check it out – just tie loose knot on each sandal strap, and you’re done!


So easy, so simple, so cute! I know… now you want some scarf sandals of your own.

    These are SO PRETTY! I love them so much. I think I’d feel like a fairy princess or something in them :)

      HAHA I love that you said you’d feel like a fairy princess! I definitely felt very pretty in these, I can’t lie. I think it’s the softness of it all and the little bow.

    I agree that feet are weird, but you actually have pretty normal looking feet at least!! Love the scarf projects- I would never be this creative!

      Ha! Thanks for saying I have normal looking feet! I don’t think I do, but thanks you anyway. It was a challenge to come up with things I coul actually make (because I’m not that crafty) and that would actually be pretty, but it was a good challenge :)

    I hate feet, too! My problem is compounded because I have to wear orthopedic inlays, which doesn’t work in open-toed shoes, so I’m kind of angry at my feet?! haha people with weird dislikes, unite! ;)

      SO glad someone else gets my feet issues! I get the foot anger too – I had foot issues as a kid so I was limited to what I could wear also! It was SO hard to take these pictures of my feet. I thought they all looked so weird! (still do!)

    You are so clever, my friend!! I never would’ve thought to do something like this with a scarf! I have a pair of flip flops in need of rescuing (because a certain pup chewed through nearly all of the thong part) but I haven’t been sure what to do with them. This. This is what I should do with them! Thanks for the inspiration :)

      It’s so funny that you say that because that was the very case with these ones! One of the straps was basically hanging by a thread, thanks to Mr. Luther! It’s an easy project and I have no doubts you won’t regret it!
