Today, I"d like to share with you some ballet shoes.
|I did this on a customer's quilt a while back. She wanted red thread so the ballet shoe would stand out.|
|Here is the customer's quilt.|
|She had a lot of hand embroidery on this quilt and chose a simple back-ground filler to not detract from the embroidery--the leaves compliment it nicely.|
STEP ONE: Thread-line in and make a kidney bean shape.
STEP TWO: Make the foot hole inside the kidney bean.
STEP THREE: Be creative here, do some ribbon vines.
STEP FOUR: Make a loop and mirror image the ballet shoe. Do a back-wards kidney bean, then fill with the foot opening. Then ribbon away to your heart's desire. KISMIF!
