Step 1.  Unravel embroidery floss down to one strand.

Step 2.  Shape thin fimo sandal base on foot, paint toe nails if desired.  Bake, let cool.  Then paint fimo (shoe base) color desired.  Paint over with fingernail polish (for high glass and durability).

Step 3.  Cut about 6" piece of floss.  Wrap double around ankle, crossing into an 'X' in front.  **HINT** we used the 3rd hand devise for holding the foot while wraping thread.  A helper (human <G>) will also do.

Step 5.  Decorate as desired.

One way to decorate.  I ended up putting another rhinestone down each side.

Enjoy, and as always.... Happy Creating!
