Tina pretty ballerina #2

This is another freebie design from 'The Dancefactory" site. There are a series of 8 different ballerinas in different dance positions. I used 28 count Monaco evenweave stitched 1/1 with silk and cotton threads. Embellished with tiny brown/gold beads for her ballet slippers, and a cute bow and some lace. Of course she had to have a fob-type accoutrement:

These accessories are so easy to make, and a great outlet for ones creativity. Imagine all the pretty color combinations, themes, and names you can give them?

Wanna make one? Go here. I used this excellent tutorial from Focus on Finishing.
