Default Re: Interchangeable Flip Flops

Velcro might work... I just don't want it to be scratchy... they are going to Disney World... I'm thinking either BIG snaps or some kind of earing clip... Off to Hobby Lobby in the morning to brainstorm...

Hopefully my baby will be feeling better by then! She's been sick all weekend and now I have this BIG order that has a deadline... ugh!

I use velcro when I make these and it seems to work well. Just make sure that it doesn't go over the edges of the flops if that makes any sense, so that it doesn't touch the foot. Let me know if you need any help..

Ok, let me just ask to clarify. Is she wanting the same bows on different pairs of flops, or different bows on the same pair of flops?

If the latter, could you make a slightly bigger bow in a solid color to match the flops, with a straight ribbon center, not glued in the front of the bow - glue that one onto the shoes. And then make several different sets of smaller bows with clippie backs to clip onto the big bow. Then you could change up the look of a basic pair of flops. I even E600'd a little loop on my croc flops, then I could change out the bows. They are black and I used a little black loop, so the loop doesn't even show if I wear them without bows. Hope that made sense!

Oh yeah my brain is cooking now... She wants to change out the bows... Different bows on the same flip flops... but yeah I think ALL of these ways would work...

I wish Hobby Lobby was open on Sunday night at 1:30 AM!! I would SO be there! I'll report back after my trip tomorrow.

Man do I miss all those instructions... darn thieves!
