Ballet Slipper Ornament


Despite a few setbacks I’m still determined to come up with at least three dance-themed ornaments. Thankfully I think I’ve found a winner in this little slipper!

The hardest part of this project was drawing a template for the slipper and foot, but after spending an hour, or two, staring and sketching feet I finally came up with one that’s not too bad.

Supplies
  • Foot and slipper template
  • beige and pink felt
  • pink embroidery thread
  • needle
  • fabric glue
  • ribbon
  • scissors
Directions

Using the template I began by cutting out two feet from the beige felt and two slippers from the pink. NOTE: This template is nothing special, as if you couldn’t already tell, but it works! Just right click the image, save it or copy it, and then paste it into a doc. You can resize/print it from there.


I sandwiched everything together and began sewing a basic blanket stitch around the outside of the foot. Across the top of the slipper I used a running stitch.

With the slipper secure on the foot, I opened up the beige felt, and added a bit of fabric glue along with the ribbon-folded over.

After about a day of dry time I cleaned up the edges and gave it a trim so that it all lined up.
Considering how easy this ornament turned out I think I might come up with at least one more felt design before the month’s over!
