Check them out in the NEW book, The Dancer's Book of Ballet Crafts: Dancewear, Accessories, and Keepsakes!
It was a treat to work with Christina Haskin, a dancer herself who now has her daughter following in her ballet slippers. For me, in designing the patterns for this book, I thought of it as an opportunity to re-embrace my early childhood; who knew that all those ballet lessons, so many yesterdays ago, would pay off? (Won't Mom be proud when I tell her?!!!)
I haven't seen a copy yet, so if you get to flip through the pages before I do, please share your thoughts. Look for my crochet Beaded Ballet Bun Cover pattern and Ballet Slippers pattern included in this book that specializes in dancewear, accessories and keepsakes for your inner -- and real life -- ballet dancer. I understand they used REAL dancers for the photography, so the pictures should beautiful! :)
