With the huge number of single-use face masks being disposed daily throughout the world, I'm wondering if the elastic could be used for ballet purposes? Probably most face mask elastic is narrower (and less robust?) than ballet shoes elastic, but what about elastic in costumes? Anyway, if anyone out there could use a batch, I'm happy to send when I'm next in England (after cleaning of course).
DD’s pointe shoes are slipping off her heels despite me moving the ribbons several times, so her teacher has advised she has elastic sewn on to them. I’ve seen two methods: one piece in a loop around the foot or two pieces going from back to front that cross over - which is best? Any advice appreciated ...
I have to sew ribbons (and criss cross elastics) on to a pair of shoes for dd, but I’ve never done ribbons before. I’m OK on the elastics, but I’m not sure where to sew the ribbons, how long to make them, what do to about fraying ends etc. Is there a good YouTube video someone could recommend? I don’t trust my own random googling to find one that’s actually right - I’ve seen some ballet bun YouTube tutorials that were definitely not what our dance school expects.
