Flower Foot Thong

Who does not love the warm summer!  As much as I love all the seasons I wait with much anticipation for those days to grow warm enough for me to ditch the socks and shoes and run around the yard barefoot (Yes, I know this behavior is normally suited for younger children and not a 30+ woman).  I just can’t deny myself the feeling of the warm earth beneath my feet.  Foot Jewelry But I still wanted my feet to look cute, so there came my obsession with ‘Foot Thongs’.

This pattern does work up quickly, but care should be given to make sure that they don’t get twisted.
