Wool felt roller skate ornament! I know the wheels look a little funny but I had no imagination when it came to those. That's the only place I used acrylic (sparkly)felt. I adapted this pattern. This is the same person who inspired the red coat except for the skate I actually bought her pattern. I would have bought the red coat pattern had it been for sale when I 1st looked at it but it was only for sale in kit from (from what I saw) and I didn't want the other ornaments. Then the other day I saw on another blog that she had down-loadable PDF's for sale so i got the ice skate. Oh well about the red coat. It would have been nice to just have a pattern instead of make my own.
I love to roller skate and ice skate. In the early 80's, the movie Ice Castles had been out for a couple of years. I LOVED that movie and wanted to be the blind figure skater (she was so cool)! Me and my friends would pretend we couldn't see while trying to skate. I swear I had a pair of skates that looked just like these.
When looking up the movie on IMDB it of course comes up in German and the title came up as "Eisfieber". I'm thinking, shouldn't it be Eisburg? And then made myself laugh becasue the movie would have been called Iceburg. I don't know, made me laugh. "Fieber" means fever in English ....
This is with a ball on the toe but I'm not sure it looks ok.
Emily had the yuck yucks on the school bus this morning. Really bad. It was in her shoes and hair and on her jacket and pants. I had to go get her from the school. The bus driver pulled over to clam her down and clean her and the bus. I feel so bad for the bus driver I'm thinking of taking her a roll of paper towels and some cookies when Emily goes back to school. The bus driver was just telling me that I have the sweetest child and she's so good, etc. etc. and then she goes and throws up on her bus!
