pink and blue crochet flip flop key chains

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.

Aren’t these color so fun? I used a yarn by DMC, called Natura Yummy. I just thought the colors screamed summer, and it turned out to be the perfect yarn for these cute flip flop keychains.

FREE Crochet Pattern: Crochet Flip Flop Key Chain | The cutest embellishment for your key ring! Also perfect for your summer craft booth.

Using your darning needle, embroidery the thong piece to the tied-off sole. Attach it at the two ends and at the toe. 

The one on the right has the thong sewn to the tied-off sole side, the one of the left has the thong sewn to the still-attached sole side, so you can do which ever you like best. (I personally like the look of the slip stitches on top.)

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).

  1. How cute they are! I find them great. Each year, I make a small gift for my young students (6 & 7 years) for the end of classes in June.
    This year you’ll be My Designer … LoL Thank you Bethany
    Amitiés du Québec, Lucie-France ;-)

  2. These keychains are adorable. I have a neighbor that I do a LOT of commissioned crochet for (she calls me her personal hooker – haha). This would be a perfect little gift for her.

  3. I have two nieces that are flipflop girls. I will be making these for them. Thank you so much for your free patterns. I appreicate them so much. Have a great day.

  4. which stitches am I supposed to go through to slip stitch these flip flops together? The slip stitches or the single crochets or both?

      1. Oh I just reread your question, I am sorry! I am seeing a typo in the pattern, you do NOT need to slip stitch all around each isle, I am not sure what I was doing putting that in there. I am very sorry for the confusion! When the two soles are done, you will use a sl st to sew them together.

  5. Hi Bethany, these flip flop key chains are so cute. I will be making some for my craft shows.
    what would you sell them for, I was thinking $2 or $3 a piece or $3 each or 2 for $5?

      1. Yes I think your right, with all the work & sewing them together, $5 each sounds about right. Thank you

  6. Love all your work and your videos are easy to follow! Do you have a baby espadrilles pattern to share?

  7. The key chains are adorable. You asked about summer and crojo. I have been working on fingerless mitts for all my nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, brothers and sisters and all the above for my inlaws, too. I decided a few weeks ago that these will be Christmas gifts. Since I have 7 siblings and my husband has 3 and all have kid and grandkids I will end up with about 50 pair. I have about 12 done so far. LOL

    1. Great idea to start on Christmas gifts! I am trying to finished up a CAL (crojo problem again) and then I am going to start on Christmas too!
