I made this for my friend’s two-year old daughter! It was very easy and a lot of fun to make them. It’s a good project for those lazy afternoons – it took me around 2 hours!
What you need:
- Grosgrain ribbons (in as many colors as you want) – I used two colors
- Fray check (or some other way to seal the ends of the ribbons)
- piece of felt
- needle and thread
- industrial strength glue
I followed the tutorial here. The only changes I did was to use 2.25” pieces of ribbon because I figured I wanted the completed bow to be around 2” in diameter.
Since I was using only two colors (as opposed to the four colors in the tutorial), I cut 20 strips of 2.25” from each ribbon. So I used 45” of each ribbon.
I tried to glue the bow to the flip flop using hot glue but when I tested it after a few days it came off. So then I used E6000 and it seems to be working so far.
