When I was younger, I had a quiet book that my grandmother made for me. There was a shoe page that I enjoyed tying and untying. I wanted to do something similar in A's book, but I wanted it to be cute too. The idea of a ballet shoe caught my eye when I saw it HERE.
I drew a ballet shoe onto a piece of paper and then transferred it to the felt. I then took a length of ribbon and pinned it in the pattern I wanted and sewed all the way up and back on both sides of the ribbon. I made sure the sewing was extra strong at the tying end.
