Default Can anyone recommend a glue....

that will stick a bow onto my Havaianas Flip Flop? I tried my hot glue gun and the bow popped of on my way to work! lol! I had only had them on for like 5 minutes! I need some kind of stretchy adhesive...!

Has anyone had any luck with a great glue that will adhere to ribbon and a flip flop?

Thanks

Thats a good idea, but to sew it on maybe hard beacuse the rubber on the flip flop is so thick?

I wrap the sides and go over the thong part leaving a little loop there. Then I wrap the bow around this loop just like a hairbow. I had a group of cheerleaders order them. They were put through it, and they still stayed on. I actually had a mom reorder a pair because the flip-flop broke and the bow stuff was still good but she couldn't figure out how to transfer the bow attachment to the new pair.

Oooh I have that at home! I will have to try it! How did you keep the bow in place while the glue was drying?

Thanks

I have made a couple of pair of flip flops and I did like someone else suggested - I tie a loop around the bow around the thong with the elastic thread and then slide my hot glue gun under there for added security with a bead of glue.

HTH!

Mindy,
Your idea sounds very interesting to me. I need to make some for my DDGD's softball team. Do you by chance have a picture of the flip flop before you add your bow? I understand the wrapping of the straps, I guess I just need help with the loop.
Thank you so much
Jeri

No, I didn't take a photo. Ok, when you are wrapping, and I found it better not to overlap your wrapping, when you get to the thong area, don't wrap it all the way to it. Stop and actually go over the thong. Like a straight line. Then pick up the wrapping on the other side and continue. You will have a small empty space that isn't connected to the plastic for you to attach your bow to. Glue to bow to the top of the straigh piece and then get your center and wrap around just like you would for a bow. Then if you want you can glue this straight piece to the top of the thong area. This would sound sooo weird if you didn't know I was talking about a flip-flop.

If the sewing doesn't work then try E600 glue. It's a industrial glue that you can get a michael's.
