Default Re: Korkers on flip flops?

Very least I only made some for DD i'd hate to of sold some and had this happen.
It's been a horrible experience for me with the ON shoes All the ribbon started pulling away even thought most of the shoes were in the drawer... never having been worn. A few days ago, I took them from the garage (I had to move them due to the strong plastic smell) and looked at them again. They're essentially useless as a decorated flip flop because the ribbon has pulled away. The korkers, however, have no problems whatsoever (thank goodness). In fact, Christine wore them in her kiddie pool and they still looked great when they dried out.

Yes. It pulled away from there as well.

I haven't had any problems with the korkers. Even after going in the pool, they still look as fresh as when I first made them.
