The Steadfast Tin Soldier and Ballerina Clothespin Doll Ornament Kit
This story, by Hans Christian Andersen about a tin soldier's love for a paper ballerina, is really one of the truest "true love" fairy tales out there! It is also a great way to showcase two of the most popular clothespin doll styles-- the soldier and the ballerina. For a blond/pink version of the ballerina, try the Suger Plum Fairy and Nutcracker Prince set.

According to the story, "A boy receives a set of 25 toy soldiers all cast from one old tin spoon and arrays them on a table top. One soldier stands on a single leg, as having been the last one cast there was not enough metal to make him whole. Nearby, the soldier spies a pretty paper ballerina with a spangle on her sash. She, too, is standing on one leg, and the soldier falls in love...Inexplicably, the boy throws the tin soldier into the fire.... A wind blows the ballerina into the fire with him; she is consumed by it. The maid cleans the fireplace in the morning and finds that the soldier has melted into a little tin heart, along with the ballerina's spangle, which is now burned black as coal." **

This kit comes with supplies to make one each Soldier and Ballerina clothespin doll Christmas ornament as pictured.. Included in your kit are: 2 dollpins (3 3/4"), heart charm (assorted sizes and styles), felt, tulle, yarn,  gold braid,  miniature sword, rosebud, spangle, one pattern sheet and two instruction sheets.*
See additional images for more of my doll sets.
*Additional crafting supplies (scissors, glue, etc.) are necessary to complete this kit.
