This year like I mentioned in a previous post I wanted to make my girls' Christmas stockings. I've wanted to make a ballerina slipper stocking for a few years now, but haven't been able to find a pattern. Luckily last month when I was telling my sister inlaw Christy that I wanted to make them for my girls she said that she made ballerina slipper stockings for her girls last year! She was kind enough to let me trace her stockings. She drew up the pattern herself. I know super talented right? I changed a few things to make it my own so I wouldn't be a TOTAL copy cat and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I still need to find some purple tulle to put along the top of the stocking, but at the moment Mia has the stomach flu and I just haven't had the time. It may have to wait till next year. I still need to finish Hayden's. I'm doing hers in light pink. Purple is Mia's favorite color so she was thrilled. I used swarovski crystals on the toe to glam it up a bit and in the center of the criss crossed ribbon going up the leg. I hand embroidered the slipper onto the stocking, used my sewing machine to sew the stocking together, and glue gunned the ribbon on. Super easy and fun too!
I'm Katie! Thanks for visiting my blog! I was inspired to create MiaMoo Designs in honor of my daughter, Mia. This has been such a fun journey! I started MiaMoo Designs 7 years ago and was mostly selling flower clips and burp cloths. I slowly began incorporating dresses, skirts and other hair accessories and turned this blog into more of a craft blog where I could post all my projects, tutorials, etc. I've been making chunky beaded necklaces for about 6 years and I think I finally found my niche! They have really taken off :) I LOVE beads and designing new necklaces to go with various clothing lines and special outfits for my clients. I really enjoy custom orders because they continue to help me think outside the box. Both my daughters 9yrs. and 6yrs. wear my necklaces and feel so glamorous especially with all the compliments they get from people when we're out! MiaMoo Designs necklaces are so unique and will make any little girl feel special. To order, leave me a comment at the bottom of the blog post you are interested in, or go to my big cartel shop to see what is already pre-made (link is at the top right of my blog). You can also find me on Facebook! Thanks! Can't wait to work with you :)
Just a Side Note:
I use swarovski crystals on my accessories--Please keep in mind they do not always photograph well due to the way they pick up light. In person they are VERY sparkly :) If you have any questions regarding the color of the rhinestones used please feel free to leave me a comment!
