Default Ever use material for flip flops?

Has anyone ever made flip flops with material? Reason I ask is because I made some for my little ones last summer and they turned out really cute and full but the problem was after she wore them a few times they would fray and you would be picking up strings from the material everywhere so I was wondering if you know of a way to fray the ends of the material like you do ribbon.

TIA

I've made "rag" ones from fabric. They frayed but it was okay for the look. You could try using a fusible interfacing on the back of the fabric to help the fraying.

Did you cut the fabric wiht pinkin sheers? I know years ago we made some with fabric strips and we used the pinkin sheers and it worked great!

yes I used to make those back in high school and I used pinking shears! I personally like the way the flops look with material a lot better than how htey look with the ribbon.
