I’ve struggled with my crojo this week. Summers are hard for me! Plus, my old iPod also died a few weeks ago. It was a 5th generation classic, so yeah, it was about 12 years old. I snagged another one and have spent that last few days putting all my music on it (some of it needed to be ripped from CDs ‘memba those?). I have forgotten about some of it and it’s crazy how listening to an old song can transport you back in time. It’s been very fun and nostalgic. Even though my mind was focused on getting all my music transferred, I was able to complete an itty, bitty project anyway, this Crochet Flip Flop Keychain! These cuties are made with cotton fingering yarn, and are so fun to mix and match colors.
These cute little crochet keychains would make a great addition to your summer fair booth, they work up quick and easy.

Tie off ONE, leave a long tail on the other.
Sc in 2ch ch from hook. Sc 6. 3 sc in next ch. Sc 9. Leave a long tail.
Using your darning needle, embroidery the thong piece to the tied-off sole. Attach it at the two ends and at the toe.
Tie off all ends.
Line up the second sole with the first sole. Using the long tail of the sole, sl st 23. Stop at the top and ch 4, and continue the sl st around (this makes a loop to attach the keyring to).
Using the long tail of your thong piece, sew it to one of the finished sole pieces. In the video, I attached the thong piece to the fastened off sole. This put the sl sts on the back, but after shooting it, I made a couple with the sl sts on the front, and I think I like that way better. Either way will work!
The one on the right has the thong sewn to the tied-off sole, the one of the left has the thong sewn to the still-attached sole, so you can do which ever you like best.
Tie off the ends (don’t worry if it’s messy, it will be covered up), and line the soles up. Using the long tail of the sole, sl st 23. Stop at the top and ch 4, and continue the sl st around (this makes a loop to attach the keyring to).
Clip end and weave them in.
