    I am making flip flops for a fundraiser and was wondering if anyone has seen JDRF fabric, or a make your own fabric?

    Also, the awareness ribbons for JDRF, are they blue?

    Thanks!

    I *thought* that JD awareness was garnet colored... I could be wrong.

    I know the bracelets are blue, so I would imagine the ribbons would be. Also I have not see fabric like that but I know you can buy that printable fabric and use their logo or iron-ons. But that might not work for the flip flops. Cute idea you have though!

    the 'offical' color is grey.. but you could always use the colors of the sneakers, red, green and blue.. I know a lot of JDRF stuff is blue..

    how are you making the flip flops?

    we are using regular flip flops and then adding tied pieces of fabric, beads, boa pieces, etc. to pretty them up. The cost to make them is pretty inexpensive. I am hoping to start selling them to raise money for our walk this year.

    That is cool flip flops. I made the bracelets with Red crystals, gray and clear.

    This is the saying I used at attached a little card to them as people donated they got one. Needless to say I have made 35 of them. Any left overs I will give out here to you all free..

    Please wear this bracelet to support my Cure for Diabetes

    The color Gray symbolizes the diabetes awareness
    the color Red symbolizes the blood drops to check my sugar levels 6-8 times a day
    The Clear symbolizes the insulin I take to stay alive
    The awareness ribbon is to Help Cure Diabetes

    Grey is the color...boring!

    One thing about using the colors of the sneakers, the are very similiar to the Autism Awareness colors. So, maybe you could embroider JDRF on them? Or could you get some JDRF walk tee's and use those for the fabric? I know for a fact that most JDRF offices have a ton of left over shirts, maybe they would donate them to you?

    We sold flip-flops for last years walk. We made them in a variety of different colors and styles. They were very good sellers. We bought the flip flops for $1.00 and added different colored ribbon. We tied small pieces of ribbons around to cover all of the rubber. We sold them for $5.00 a pair and people were ordering them. It was great! We sold them at our local Friendly's during our Family Fun Night fundraiser.

    We have orange max-life JDRF awareness bracelets we wear like this one http://www.jdrf.org/index.cfm?page_id=107147. I saw one of the American Idol contestants with an orange something on his wrist - gosh which guy was it? David Cook - and the orange bracelet was not the JDRF one - it was for leukemia awareness.

    I realize we're talking a different kind of bracelet, but just throwing this out there.

    The red ribbons are associated with ADA, as far as I have seen and the lovely gray :rolleyes: for Type 1/JDRF.

    Great idea for a fundraiser!

    Thoover: I love the poem with your bracelets. Very creative!

    Cute idea! I think grey might be the perfect color after all since so much of diabetes care is not black and white - it's grey. Always changing and evolving.
