Young girls are working on their ballet skills in this charming cross stitch pattern by French designer Perrette Samouiloff. Each dancer is her own story, with one bending to lace her ballet shoes and another wrapped in a cardigan to keep warm after her practice. Stitch the complete pattern, or use individual elements to make a series of smaller pieces. It would be perfect for decorating a little girl's room or for stitching on a bag for her ballet shoes and outfit.
This piece uses some fractional cross stitches, so it is best worked on linen.
The design is available as a printed pattern. Get up and stitching quickly with the coordinating thread pack which comes complete with 13 full skeins of DMC cotton embroidery floss.
