with this method - i don't think you'd have to wrap the back strap . . . unless i'm not picturing in my muddled mind what you're trying to do!

edit - hahah - just saw the pic you attached . . . you could start this just above where the 2 straps meet in light pink . . .
You and I share similar art/craft backgrounds (basketweaving [had to take this to get my master's, it was difficult!] pottery, rug hooking, needlepoint, yadda yadda yadda) but crocheting is something that I haven't really done.

The problem is, I really don't want to wrap the entire strap area because if I do, there is a big possibility she won't wear them then. She doesn't want the ribbon against her skin.

I did order a tube of the flip flop glue so I'm anxious to see how that goes (thank you for sharing that)
