Step 1: What You Will Need
~ 2 X Soda bottles.
~ Some cord.
~ Duct tape.
~ Your choice of lining. I have used Astro turf.
Step 2: Cutting and Creating Cord Holes
Take your bottle and cut the base off. Make the cut about 1 inch above the bottom.
Now squash the bottle flat.
Mark three points for cord mounting. Position holes as pictured.
Cut small holes to feed the cord through. At the neck you will need two small holes to feed the cord through.
Step 3: Inserting Cord
Take your cord and tie a knot in one end. Start at one side and feed the cord through the points. Make sure it is secure, as you do not want it to come undone during your travels.
Step 4: Cutting and Positioning the Lining
Take your lining and using a shoe or thong as a template, cut out a rough shape.
Cut a slit to accomodate the cord.
Apply your duct tape to hold the lining in position.
Step 5: Your Journey Begins
Your finished now, it is time to venture. Try your snazzy new thongs out and about.
If ever you have an issue another bottle is not far away.
You shall get many a good road travelled in these.
