Default How long do you cut your 3/8 ribbon to make military braids for flip flops?

I have been practicing the military braid just right off the spool. How long do you cut your 4 ribbons when doing the braid for flip flops? I'm tired of weaving flops and ready to just glue on a military braid

Thank you in advance!

I weave off the spool and then hold it up to the flippies to see if it is long enough then cut it off and finish the ends.

See that is what I have been doing for my headbands. I just wanted to cute several 3/8 ribbons so I don't have all these spools over in my "corner" LOL. I do them at night watching tv and the spools just are everywhere. I was wanting to precut like I do everything else on my self healing mat. Oh well. I guess I will weave one, hold it up, and take it apart to measure it. LOL. Just didn't want to have to take one apart. Thank you though!

Do you plain wrap your flops before putting the military braid on, or just put the braid on by itself on top of the flops?

I have been only using 2 colors, but 4 ribbons. I used the free tut I found to learn it and it called for 4 ribbons. http://militarybraid.blogspot.com/se...adband%20braid But you can do 2 or 4 colors or whatever you like. I personally like 2 colors right now bc I'm not good at pairing more than that together and making it look like it is supposed to go

I also only usse 2 ribbons, but I have the bought instructions. Anyway, If I'm making adult flip flops I cut each piece of ribbon about 70", and that is enough to do both straps of one flip flop. Its probably a little more than enough, but not by much. I just start braiding until I have enough for one strap and then I start again with the left over ribbon. Hopefully you are not confused now?!??!!

I don't wrap them first. Just make the braid and glue it on with E6000!

Here I go again, giving away my instructions for free to you wonderful ladies! I do a little over 3x the length the braid needs to be. So if making a headband, take the end of the ribbon to the tip of the headband and measure over the top to the other tip. Take that measurement and tripple it, and then I always add a little extra(like 1/2 the original measurement). I do the same with flip flops, measure from strap tip, around the toe and to the other strap tip. The 3x length is usually perfect, but sometimes to get a print to show better I make the braid loose so the extra is really good for this. HTH
