I used hot glue-fine for my 6-yr-old, but my 2-yr old is destructive-she'll need the E6000 on the next ones!

I made a pair using hot glue. I won't be making them for kids under 6 or 7. DO you think they'll hold up???? Thanks for replying to me

Maeve.

I have used E6000 but had problems with it. I had the shoes sitting out at the Farmers market for a few hours it was maybe around 85 degrees and the glue started to get goopy and the flower start sliding off. I sew everything on now.

I've been using hot glue and the first pairs I made that have not sold are not coming undone. I switched hot glue however since Micahel's was out of my brand and they seem to come undone at the beginning and end. I don't like the fumes from E6000 and am too impatient to let it dry over night!! No complaints yet with hot glue but I will definitely switch back to Aleen's instead of the kind I have now.

They sell Flip Flop Glue at Michaels, Joanns and AC Moore. I am just now trying it so we will see. I use E6000 and Hot Glue also.

I saw a suggestion on here from someone about using the clip earrings to attache them to the flops. That way they are interchangeable with whatever color.... I haven't tried it yet - bought some from Hobby Lobby but I will try it!
