When my daughter Snowflake ❄ started wearing pointe shoes(Age nine),I also started learning to sew them. Here is some tricks i learned from other ballet moms (that have older ballet daughter than mine). Here is step by step procedure how I do it.
Above is additional materials you need for sewing the pointe shoes.
》I used dental floss as thread to sew the garter and the ribbon because its more durable and its not penetrating on the outer layer of the other side of the pointe shoes.
》 I use lighter to burn both ends of the garter and ribbon so it wont snag.
》 Putting rubber/leather capping(Optional ) on the tip of the pointe shoes to make it last(I usually put it before but instead my daughter use Leukoplast (plaster used in injuries)
There was a saying” Life begins at forty”.
I’m wondering so much of this saying before i reach forty. And now I passed forty I didnt see much of that saying except changes in my moods,behavior and my physical body. The saying sounds positive when you listen about it yet in my reality,it’s superficial. My life begin long time before I turned forty. Now is another chapter of it, where your body no longer listen to your metabolism which makes your body easily change and develop cellulite. I envied those women who never gain weight(how much they eat or concieve children)in my thoughts ^How gifted they are^. On my behavior on the other hand; a lot of changes in it that sometimes stressful.I overthinking for everything that sometimes it’s even nonsense. Attack of sudden mood swing that makes me sounds like I have split personality(one time joke coming from my children)
