Default Bows on Flip Flops

I am having a time with these. I use the cable ties and slide the bows through the cable ties so the are interchangable. I am having customers that are losing them. They falll off.

I guess I will not make them interchangable and start gluing the bow to the flop.

What do each of you use? Do I just not put a clip on the bow and use hot glue to make them attach to the flops?

Thanks,
Teresa

Hey Teresa,
I have heard of a lo of girls that use the mini elasti bands, ya know the ones some people use to put up their hair. I, personally dont use cable ties. I just take a strip of ribbon and wrap it around the thong and glue it. You can also probably sew the ribbon strip on. Or try this! If it is possible,never thought of it til now. Do it just like you would a ribbon t. Run the safety pin under the ribbon, and clip the bow on to the safety pin.

Hope this helps! I have made so many sets of flops, and never had problems. Get to work on it girly!! You'll get it!! GOOD LUCK!!

Hmmm....If you still wanted to do interchangable....I'm wondering if you could use a really small french clip..... I don't know if they come small enough or if your bow is too small to cover it up, but those would def. hold better than an alligator clip and still be interchangable.

I made me a pair of flops today. I hardly ever get the chance to make me or my daughter stuff because of so many orders.

I put the not-slip grips the kind that is foam with sticky stuff on back. So far they are staying on. I am going to a meeting at 6:00 I am going to wear my flops and see how they go.

I have already sold so many pairs I feel bad if everyone elses are coming off to.

No one has said anything. I will post later.

Teresa
