Its official! Carnival week has started. Since this is the 10th Carnival since it restarted in 2001 they kicked off with a birthday party, and what birthday party is complete without a birthday cake?
As I may have droned on about interminably mentioned, Naomi is Queen this year, and to our surprise here she is immortalised in cake!!! You have no idea how hard it was to stop her from eating this entire slab of icing (and slipping into a sugar induced coma) before I got this photo
now she has taken the photo I'm eating it mwahahaha haha ha Naomi :)
Inspired by this tutorial I found online I decided to have a go at jazzing up a pair of very cheap, plain flip flops. This is what they looked like before:-
I cut up lots of old fabric scraps and machined them together as described in the tutorial, (I found it very traumatic when the instructions called for "messy stitching" as every fibre of my being screamed at me to stitch in nice straight lines, but I persevered!), and used the resultant material to cover the plastic straps and hey presto:-
The whole process took less than 2 hours start to finish and now I think they look like an expensive designer surf brand. I'm so pleased with them I'm thinking of making another pair in a different colour.
