A New Ornament

We're finally (mostly) getting spring, so I've been catching up on gardening and some long overdue cleaning, but I did have a little time today to try a new ornament pattern I've been wanting to try:

They're felt ballet slippers, and the bow there is supposed to be in gold cord--which I don't have.  I do have SOME gold cord, but it ravels and can only be used when the ends won't show.  Small matching pink ribbon would work as well, but I don't have that either.  Pink felt with white ribbon could work as well, but I think I have those either.  I took ballet for 10 years and taught for 2 or 3, and I tended to wear black or white slippers, but black wouldn't look very festive.  Ideally, I would now make the matching Mouse King ornament to go with the Nutcracker theme, but I don't have gray felt either.  This is going to be a long year.

Theo didn't feel inclined to help today
I think he's saving his energy for Finishing Friday.......
