ballerina ornament tutorial

Tuesday, 11 December 2012

 i found this picture and decided to make it into a christmas ornament
first i printed it out on to card then cut it out.

 i cut around were the top of the skirt meets the body and then glued another peice of card to fill the gap behind it.
then i cut some netting material and made four layers of it in long strips and took a needle and thread and did a running stitch along the top and gathered it then glued it on to the skirt and legs part. then i glued the body part back on top
thats all it took

i was inspired by this photo i saw on pinterest but there was no back link to it
