A few weeks ago my youngest started dance class. Of course she needed her own dance bag lovingly made by mom.
The fabric is Ann Kelle ballerinas for the exterior and Michael Miller Pixie Stix for the handles and lining. I just made up my own pattern after checking out Anna’s Noodlehead tutorials, deciding what I could and couldn’t do and trying to figure out appropriate dimensions. It went together like a breeze! I don’t know why I don’t try more projects like this one.
The bag is the perfect size to hold both her tap and ballet shoes with room to grow about 10” x 13”. I used Pellon SF101 for interfacing which gave it a nice shape without being stiff. I am happy to say that after being carried around nearly constantly for the past few weeks, the handle and zipper have held up just fine.
I also wanted to let everyone know that Jana won the giveaway for the “emerald” fat quarters.
Thanks to everyone who entered! I’ll be having another giveaway in my next post, this time for an embroidery book. Have you ever tried embroidery? I’m hooked!
