As summer approaches we think in terms of weddings, Father’s Day, family vacations, and graduations. June is certainly a month for lots of activity and special occasions.
But almost everyone looks forward to vacation time. Whether that means packing the car to go camping in the mountains or packing your suitcase with your favorite bathing suit to head to the beach, it’s all about having fun. When I think of summer, I think of flip-flops! Did you know that they used to be called thongs?
With this Friday freebie, you might not be able to insert your feet into these flip-flops but they’ll be fun to decorate your fridge – be sure to crochet a pair!
