Massmon, thanks hon... no worries. I haven't quite given up hope yet lol
I'm going to see if that flip flop glue has better holding properties against the toddler shoe.
In the meantime, I finished 2 other pairs. Christine doesn't want the ribbon on the straps at all, so I guess she saved me from extra work (I'm still going to keep trying though with my first pair, as I said up above).
I made the korkers so that they are removable. I can mix and match any korker that I make. I can swap out sizes and colors. I'm really happy with how they turned out. ((plus, I want to add.. they're "kid" tested! Christine has been wearing the pink pair for the past 4 hours.. squeeee! ))
