Default Korkers on flip flops?

For those who make flip flops with korkers on top, what size bow do you usually attach? 2"? Smaller.. bigger?

I want to make a few pairs for Christine who wears a toddler size 8 shoe. Would a 2.5" korker be too big?

Should I try to make something around 1.5"? 1"? Or would that be too small?

Thanks girls for any help you can offer me

I like the 2"-2.5" best on toddler flops I tried the 1"-1.5" on a pair of toddler 5's and it didn't look right. Just look too small.

I wouldn't do anything smaller than 2". I like them kind of big. I just try it up to the flip flop and see how it looks. I love korkers on flip flops!!

I use 2.5 on all of mine. I attach them with E6000 and hold them on with a clothes pin overnight.

Thanks mar-lea! My E6000 tube is a mess (it hardened) but I hope to squeeze out at least what I need for today lol

Yay!!! I'm glad you posted this. LOL!!! I bought 7 pairs of flip flops at an auction the other week. (I only paid $1 for all 7 pair). I guess we'll see about quality. I was wanting to dress them up with korkers and maybe even just bows. I was wondering if my glue gun was going to hold them or not.
