After making my first ballerina puppet with the standard pink tutu, I decided to think about fairy tales a bit and come up with a ballerina from a fairy tale. I remembered I used to listen to Kate Bush when I was younger and had a cd called “The Red Shoes.” The song came from a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen.
I already had all the yarn as well as the red tulle, so I did not have to hit the craft store for this one, which is good since I have no craft budget right now. I do have a little list in my head of yarn colors I want to buy for future projects, but for now I need to think of projects that use my stash.
ASL signs: I am trying to incorporate a little signing with each post so for this one I would like to share the signs for red and shoes since I already shared dance and dancer. For red, your index finger touches the middle of your lips and moves down to about your chin or a little lower. For shoes, make two fists and knock them together midway in front of your torso. Think of knocking the dirt off your shoes before bringing them in the house.
