Ballet Cross Stitch Motifs For Your Favorite Ballerina

Jan 16, 2008
If you have a little girl that loves ballet, or need a gift for your child's dance instructor, you might consider giving them a handmade gift that depicts their love of the dance. Finding a ballet cross stitch motif should be relatively easy to do, and would combine your love for cross stitch with their love of ballet dancing.

When looking for a ballet cross stitch pattern, there are many designs and themes to choose from. If you're an advanced cross stitcher, have intermediate skills, or are just beginning, it should be possible to find patterns and charts - both online and offline - to meet your taste and skill level.

Whether it is holiday gift-giving time or a birthday or just because, creating a cross stitch piece for a ballet dance teacher is an excellent way to show you are thankful for her investment in your child's life. Ballet cross stitch is a unique gift idea that the teacher will cherish for years to come.

For the teacher who has younger students, consider creating a design with children ballerinas. You could also choose pink ballet slippers, or a ballerina putting on her shoes. Don't forget to say "thank you" by including a personal message or quote about dancing. Remember, too, to stitch the date the gift is given on the completed piece.

Get your child involved in the process of creating a gift for the teacher, or if no gift is needed, simply turn your dancing child on to a love of cross stitching by incorporating ballet. Let the child choose the design. Cross stitching together can become a great time for learning and bonding.

Ballet themed dcor is a great way to use your cross stitching talent to create a special room for your son or daughter. You can cross stitch on large pieces of fabric or cross stitch smaller pieces that can be framed. Use alphabet patterns for words like "ballet" or "dance" or do dancers in different poses. The room design will be one of a kind.

Ballet cross stitch motifs let you combine two beloved hobbies resulting in pieces of work you can use for gift-giving or dcor. It's a creative way to display an appreciation for the art of dance.
