Tamiko asked us to make Hawaii themed blocks this month in the Cocorico bee. One of her suggestions was a flip flop. I jumped on that one because I love wearing my flip flops from spring straight through the fall. I designed this block for her, using Linen Texture from Timeless Treasures for the sole because it looks a bit like cork to me. The straps are a great opportunity to use bright playful fabrics. I chose a dot from Robert Kaufman. The background is Stained Glass in Aqua by Dear Stella. It's great as a background fabric because it works without looking busy even though it is broken up by a number of seams. I also feel like it has an Hawaiian vibe...not sure why.
