Attatch a button on one end of the straps (where you co 5 at) and attatch a button the way you see fit.
There is no need to worry about a buttonhole because the stitches are so big you can simply pop it into one of the stitches. If you feel that you need a sturdier buttonhole then make one before you finish the straps.
Tie your CO tail into a loop big enough for your index toe to fit in. I just thought of this and am going to try it next time. You could make an i-cord long enough to make the toe loop before you start on the pattern. The length of the loop is up to you and your toes.
I usually have a big problem wearing TOE RINGS and the loops I have made for my toe does not bother me a bit.
Make 2 thongs and go to the beach.
I have been walking bare-foot with mine on and I have also been wearing my “regular” sandals over top of them.
