This sketch is a simple rendition of the little slipper I saw in Godeys magazine.
And this is what I came up with. I dyed silk ribbon to match. Who ever knew there were so many shades of red? This is one of the pieces I will be teaching at Celebration. I am so excited about finally getting the little shoe as I envisioned it. I wanted it sparkly, since the Ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz were my inspiration for color. For a simpler design on the toe, I chose an adaptation from a 16th Century lace pattern book. I love going to these old copies, and working up a design to stitch.
