Toe thongs are also called foot thongs, barefoot sandals or beach sandals, but they all amount to the same thing…which is a whole lot of nothing covering your foot. They are worn inside as well and look especially sexy when your toes are all done up. They are basically just for fun and because they are so quick and easy to make, you can have a pair to compliment any attire.
Things You'll Need
To make your toe thongs, measure your foot from around the ankle, then crisscross and around your index toe. If it’s 21″ than you want to chain stitch your cording to a length of 16″ laid out flat. Now join the two ends together into a circle and tie off. Once your chain stitches are joined, lay it flat as if it were two pieces side by side. Bring sides together and form a small knot about 3″ up from one edge. This makes two loops, a small one that goes around your toe and the large loop for your ankle.
Thread your needle with the nylon thread. Choose beads and sew them onto the knotted section of your toe thong. You can vary the color of the cording or beads as desired; the combinations are endless.
There is no crocheting to make this toe thong. Cut a single piece of cording 24″ long. Bend in half so each end is even with the other and lay flat. At the opened end thread both ends of the cording through two crystal beads. Set these about 3″ from the other end and make a simple knot under these beads. After this knot, simply string beads onto the ends separately so you have two sides. Make a small circle and knot underneath. Tie at back of ankle.
For sizing the crocheted toe thongs, basic rule is to subtract 5″ from the measured length.

There is no real wrong or right way to make these, so just go for it. 🙂 If you don’t like what you just made, I’m sure you can spare another 20 minutes to try again. 🙂
