In the summer of 2006, my daughter Danielle learned how to crochet over flip-flops. She went over and under the straps so fast, my eyes couldn’t keep up with her hand motions. She made flip-flops with different colored yarns for her friends and family. I realized what a great idea! You can select both the yarn color and the style of flip-flop.
We went to the store and bought an assortment of rubber and bamboo flip-flops to begin making them in various colors and designs. We were delighted by the outcome of our creations! Since you can wear Flippie Slippies® inside the house, as slippers or outside as flip flops, Danielle decided to call them Flippie Slippies®. Flippie Slippies® keep your toes warm when you step out of the bath or shower, too. Flippie Slippies ® are ideal for going outside to get the newspaper or even taking the dog for a walk. Flippie Slippies® are two shoes in one. This is how it all began.
Danielle has always been very creative. As Danielle’s mother, I took her creativity to the next level and began this business venture. Since childhood, Danielle had dreams and goals to become a fashion designer. We’re looking forward to watching her aspirations unfold.
After graduating from Boston University with a B.A. Visual Arts and an M.A. in Education, Danielle decided to become a high school art teacher She continues to make decisions on the designs and color combinations for the Flippie Slippies® to suit each customer's satisfaction.
