Default My feelings are hurt---LOL!!!

A friend of mine asked me to make her some flops. I did, and she LOVES them. So then she asks me to make her daughter some...any color...doesn't matter what I come up with---she's liked every set that I've done (her words). Well- I came up with these and thought they were cute, but when I took them to her, she (the mother, my friend) said she didn't like them. I didn't quite know what to say other than she didn't have to buy them. She took a pic and sent it to her daughter to see if she liked them...but before her daughter texted back, she asked me if she could just give me a color for me to do, etc. I told her "no"- that I wasn't going to make 5 pairs of flops that they might not like. It just came up and out before I realized what I said. By that time, my feelings were hurt and I had my arse on my shoulders and told her to just not worry about it (I was laughing and played it off---so I didn't really catch an attitude with her...although I was soooooo embarrassed by her saying in front of a couple of coworkers that she didn't like them.). Anyway- the daughter texted her that she liked them and wanted them...so she's getting them afterall. Tell me the truth---do you think it's an ugly combination? I thought they were cute, and I would wear them.

I don't think they are ugly. The pic is kind of dark and blurry. Is that grey 3/8 and black ddr? I like the bottlecap! Did you make something brighter for the mom?

Not everyone has the same taste, so don't take it personal! See her dd liked them even though the mom didn't. I totally agree with you not wanting to make 5 pair that she may or may not like. After not liking one she needed to pick specific ribbons!

I think they clash. I would have done a plain black bottle cap or get rid of the polka dot ribbon and do a plain color with a decorative bottle cap. I ask my girls for a second opinion because to me, things seem fine but to them its not.

I like them! They look subdued (sp?) but classy which is how I prefer my flip flops. Also, the colors look like they won't clash with most of my clothes.

I love the ribbon combo on the flop, but not the cap. Then again, I have never liked leopard, so that's prob why But I like them and I'm sorry your feelings got hurt. You are totally justified for not wanting to make 5 pairs of flops she won't like.

My pic is horrible---took it on my Blackberry in my dark classroom--LOL! It's not grey, it's mudpie. The drr and the 3/8 are close to being the same color. The ones I made for the mom are chocolate and light blue. The daughter is 17, so I figured she would wear a lot of brown and black.

I actually went back and forth on the cap for a while, but I decided that I liked it and went with it.

I am not a fan of animal print so that is why I don't especially like them. I definitly don't think they are ugly.

I'm sorry! I think they are cute, but it is a personal thing. My mom and I pick out COMPLETELY different things when we shop. I totally agree with you not wanting to do any more *custom* orders without her seeing the ribbons/embellishment first. Shake it off, if her dd liked them, that's all that matters
