Default Re: Flip Flop Question

thanks for your ideas, and such, i think if the bows not to big it looks weird too LOL i don't listen to dh half the time

well i made a bow and attached it (not all the way) to a flip flop without the covered thong and yea it looks cheap and weird so no i don't think that would be a good idea, i didn't like it a nyway,,,

but i do like how the thong part looks with just the ribbon on top of it instead of being all the way wrapped kwim, WoodKath, what size of ribbon do you use for your flops or do you just compare ribbon to the thongs to see which fit?

Those flipflops are the cutest!!! I really like the strip of ribbon running down the side instead of wrapped. It looks clean and I am all about clean simple lines. When someone was asking about the thong part, I thought they meant the part that goes between the toes.

Usually it's 3/8" ribbon. I am glad you all like them!!!

i saw a paper at HL where they took a razor and did little slices on the thong part about 1" apart and the weaved the ribbon in and out of that--i think i might try that

How do you get the ribbon on the thong part (and around the base) to look so flat and perfect? On the ones I've seen it looks like the shoe was made that way!! What kind of glue is used? Does it stay looking good for a while?

I usually use E6000 for that. It's really smelly, but holds really well. As for lining it straight, I just tug and pull until I get it where I think it looks good. HTH.

Your flip-flops are so cute! Do you scotch-guard the ribbon? And I might have missed it but where do you get your flip-flops? So cute!!!

Thanks!! I get my flops at Old Navy usually. Most of the people who buy from me request that brand as they hold up better. They are made from rubber as opposed to foam which will start to "break apart". I do usually scotch guard them to keep them as clean, etc. for as long as they can. I am doing about 70 pairs for an upcoming show and won't do that until the last minute.
