Hi Friends! Summer is here!

This instructable is about Beaded Barefoot Sandal which is trendy and elegant. These barefoot swim sandal can be worn while swimming, on the beach, a pool side party or for a beach wedding.

The hand crafted sandal can be worn instead of swim shoes or flip flops. You don't have to worry if your flip flops are sinking in the sand or falling off. You can just slip on the barefoot sandal while in water. They will look so elegant in the water.

You can even wear them over your flip flops, flats, sandals and open-toed heels. It is a two in one use.

I made a pair of them for my friend and she just loved it. Hope you like it too.

Step 1: Materials

Materials needed:

Wool Yarn/thread - Based on you Feet size

Beads (About 60) - I used two size of beads - Larger creme colored beads for the long portion and smaller red beads for the ankle portion.

Scissors

Tape

needle

Step 2: Strand

Picture of Strand

Take three stands of Wool thread. The measurement of each strand is such as that it reaches from the toe till the back of your anklet.

The length of each strand should be double the times the measured length of thread.In this way we get sufficient length to braid and tie the knot at the back of your ankle when finish.

Step 3: Knot

Picture of Knot

At the center of the measured strand tie a knot around the toe.

I used double knot so that the knot will stay secure.

The loop should be perfectly fitting the toe.

Be careful that you don't make it so tight that you stop the blood circulation.
