Behind Sugababies Designs!

Sugababies Designs started in 2012 after my husband graduated Army basic training. I wore my first ever flip flop design to his graduation. It was his last name in tiny gem stones along the straps. EVERYONE was in love with them and told me about a little site called ETSY. My shop was born. I wore my signature welcome home flip flops to his redeployment ceremony and the bow style was born.

I made the original letter binder for all his letters and pictures from basic training. During his first deployment it was nice to have it to hold and read while they were out on missions. Even with all the technology of today, we still wrote each other so he had something to hold onto as well for those time.

My designs have changed over the years, from tiny gems to ribbon and bows. The process is much shorter but still takes around 3 days in-between dry times. I do not use hot glue in my designs. I use industrial strength glue. I would hate for any part of my flip flop to fall off in the first few wears due to the hot glue not setting. I also recently switched to a flip flop supplier who has 9 flip flops colors in 11 sizes and has them in stock ALL YEAR ROUND. This is perfect for this Texas girl,.

Frequently asked questions
How long does it take to make my order?

Currently my time from when you press order to it leaving with the postal service varies by item.

5-7 business days for flip flops
10-14 business days for photo albums/letter binders

If you need your item in a hurry there is a listing to add rush processing for a fee of $5. You then jump the order line and your item will ship within 3 days.

How long will my item take to get here once it is made?

I ship USPS first class mail.Under normal circumstances they have 5-7 days as the estimated time of arrival.

If you need your item faster you can upgrade shipping at check out to 1-3 days estimated time of arrival. * please not this option does not speed up processing you will need to add this listing to your order and upgrade shipping to get faster processing and shipping ( )

How do I add customization or personalization to my order?

All my items, with the exception of the "Ready to Ship" section, are made to order. This means I start the order once you hit submit. With this option you can make small changes in color, ribbon and names if personalized. *Please check the listings for the color chart, sizing chart and center options*

At check out here is an example of what you can put in the notes to seller after choosing you size and center:

Ribbon color for straps: Pink
Ribbon Color for Bow: Teal
Bottle cap image personalization: Amber

A custom order is completely different fabric or ribbon I have to find. This also can be personalized but comes with a small fee $5 and different processing time. Please click the custom order button to get this type of order started.

How do I know what size to get?

There is a sizing guide in the listing pictures. Please you this as a guide when choosing your size. When in doubt please size up. Sizing up is always better than sizing down, especially for the toddler sizes.

Why was tax added to my order?

If your item is being shipped in the great state of TX you will have a 8.25% sales tax. This is where I have my business license.

Can I order as a gift and have it shipped elsewhere?

You can ship any of my items directly to your gift recipient. I would be happy to include a complimentary gift note. Please let me know at checkout if this item is a gift.

I also offer a gift wrapping option. For $3 I will neatly wrap your gift in premium pink wrapping paper and place a bow and gift tag.

Can I return my item and get a refund?

I do take returns. The item must be returned to me in the condition received by you. If damaged during delivery a photo of the item and packing are must be provided for refund. I refund after I receive the item back from you.

Please keep in mind that every item in my shop is handmade. As with all hand made items, they are not 100% perfect as with an item manufactured by machines. I always strive to be very meticulous with craftsmanship but there may be signs that your item is made by hand. A spot of glue here or there can happen, since that is what is used to adhere bows, fabric and ribbons Please keep this in mind and remember that your item was made with love.

I ordered the wrong size can I exchange it?

I do offer size exchanges. I require that you ship the item back to me and be in my possession before I ship a replacement pair. All of the shipping involved in this process would be paid for by you.
