Default flip flop

Is there a tutorial on how to make them? Do you wrap the whole strap?

I'm sorry i can't help I'd love to be able to make them too. I'd love to know where the flip flops come from cos i can't get anything over here that doesn't have the name of the store printed on them!!!!!!!!!! I don't want people to know where i got them and how much i paid for them. It'll just cause problems with my pricing i Haven't a clue how to make them and i'm talking about pricing them I need to go to bed!!!!!!!!!!

Hey-I've just started making them, too and posted a thread today because I wanted to see how people are making their bows removable. (Here's the link to the thread and responses I got: http://hipgirlclips.com/forums/hairb...king-them.html)

To wrap them, I used the tutorial here:
http://hipgirlclips.com/forums/instr...s-contest.html
I just modified the loops around the to a bit so that I could attach/remove my bows.
HTH-they were lots of fun to make and my girls love them!

I make mine with Old Navy flops... Yeah the store brand is printed on there and they are cheap(price wise) but they are the best quality... I have found most people don't mind that I only paid $2.50 a pair!

And the straps depend on the find of flops you are making... if you are tying the fabric/tulle on them then yes you cover the whole strap... if you are putting on a bow its your preference on wither or not you cover the strap with anything... for mine I put a string of rhinestones on the strap!

Ooh.........what's the URL??? I'd love to try this. I look at everyones and i just think they're soooo pretty and it's the right time of year to sell them over here. At the moment i'm limited to baby clippies and bands. I think if i broaden my horizons a little i might actually start making some money!!!!!!!!
