Wee Folk Art has a tutorial for a sweet little ballet slipper book mark. Miss Lily's ballet recital took place this past weekend, so the timing was perfect. The book mark makes a sweet gift for a dance instructor, or you could use it as a Christmas ornament if your little gal is pining to be Clara (or Marie - depending on what version your family is into- we are in the Clara camp).
I made a pair of slippers with glittery twill tape as opposed to grosgrain. The Tales from the Ballet book has become a Miss Lily favourite - this week it's Giselle.
