I loved dancing when I was a little girl, I always wanted to be a ballerina but mother sent me to do tap and modern dancing, nevertheless I still enjoyed it.

With me having my own little girl (although she is only 10 months old) I would love her to have the experience of dancing but at the moment, considering she is not quite on her feet yet, novelty ballet shoes will have to do.

I took my pattern for baby Mary Jane shoes and adjusted it so I was able to make the shoes without the straps. Using baby pink fingering yarn and 3.5mm hook they look so pretty and dainty but no ballerina shoe is complete without the satin ribbon around the leg.

I took approximately 1 metre of pink satin ribbon and attached it to the back of the shoe with a crocheted heel loop. They were complete!

Now was the hardest part, keeping my little girl distracted enough to put the on, cbeebies worked a treat.
