Subject: Snowflake Ballerinas

Pretty paper ballerinas for a little girl's party.

Make ballerinas to hang from white bond or any attractive discard paper. Maybe make one to stand in the center of the birthday cake.


And why not make a tutu for each little girl at the party! Just get some pretty colors of tulle at Joann, gather, and attach to ribbon or wide bias or twill tape (leaving extra at ends to tie.)

Want an easy way to gather? Set machine zig zag for stitch length 4 and width 4. Lay a heavy thread like crochet cord over the edge of tulle and zig zag over the heavy thread. Then pull the heavy thread to gather as full as you like, leaving it long enough to go around a girl's waist.

To attach gathered tulle to ribbon or tape: Use same zig zag setting. Allow 12 - 15 inches of ribbon or tape at each end to tie, and lay ribbon or tape on gathered tulle edge and stitch.

There will probably be some scrap tulle left, so cut a strip 4" wide and gather up one edge to make a "flower" to tie or wire to a hair clip.

Once tutus and hairpieces are on at the party, line up and do a simple dance pattern. Walk 4 steps and point. You can cue ... Starting on left foot 1234 point. Right foot 1234 point. Then again with arms out. Again with arms overhead and finger tips touching. This could go on for awhile ... with variations like form a circle and go one way and then back the other way. Then bow.

I can picture this done to singing Happy Birthday. Step out on Birthday with each phrase. Gesturing with arms out to the birthday girl at the end. Someone needs to have a camera ready!
