Question Flip Flop Sizes, Colors, and Instructions.

Hi! Summer is coming near and I'm thinking about making embellished flip flops! (ribbons and bows)

I'm thinking about buying Old Navy's flip flops but I have NO idea what sizes to buy. Can you ladies kindly help give me suggestions and advice?

If you were under strict budget....

1. what size flip flops would you get?
- Women Size
- Toddler Size

2. What color flip flops would you get?

3. Flat or wedge flip flops?

4. How do I secure the bows to the middle?


Do you recommend a particular flip flop instruction that's online? Free or not, I don't mind purchasing it! Thank you in advance!!

I would go w/ womens size 8. and go with kids sizes 8/9 & 10/11... You don't really need instructions for these.. You just cover the strap w/ E6000 glue and make a bow, flower or whatever and go from there.

Good luck!

If you order online at Old Navy today you get 15% off your order and I do believe free shipping.

Sizes...I ordered mostly 7/8 9/10 because I think they run small. And I use hot glue, and DS tape. E6000 on some of the centers

just glue it on! if you don't want to get into interchangeable, thats the easiest way! Not with a hot glue gun though, E6000

Here are free instuctions. I made a few pairs, and you can check them out on my FB page using the link below. They are not on my site yet. I am still debating if I should sell them.

I go with the 2 smallest sizes at Old Navy. They always sell!! I get brown and embellish with brown and pinl ( a common color) and I get black. You can put any color combo on them. Just remember, no matter what color or size you get, someone will want what you don't have!!! Always happens!!

Please be careful...someone in another forum posted that she bought 100 pairs online and Old NAvy contacted them to say that she is NOT allowed to resell them and they cancelled her order (otherwise she would have faced legal ramifications)
