So, my newest endeavor...
Peekaboo convinced me to buy some pink rabbit fur, and she desperately wants slippers trimmed in it. She is actually due for some new slippers, so I agreed. I asked her what she wanted beaded onto her uppers......if you know her at all, you will have guessed....Ballerinas!
I tried to get her to agree to a pair of ballerina slippers with ribbons, or one ballerina leg....things easier to portray with beads-she wouldn't have it. So I decided that beading wouldn't do, and I am giving embroidery a try. I even bought one of those little hoopy things! I decided on denim for the uppers (canvas or stroud would have been too pale) and went with two slightly different poses for the ballerinas. I finished the second one tonight.
I think they look pretty darned good!!
