Bug's a little particular when it comes to her shoes, so after hearing her whine that her flip flops were indenting her heels, one too many times, I figured some action was necessary.
I simply hacked off the elasticized portion with scissors. A two second fix, & now she has two pairs of sandals she'll actually wear.
She was so thrilled with the results, she insisted I take a picture & then she ran around the shouting, "I love my pwip-pwops!" Who knew?!
