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.
