Bag for my Ballerinas

I love these little ballerina designs from RetroBoulevard. I’ve used them for gifts, and I made this adorable little ballet bag, that each of my girls has used (currently the youngest is waiting for her lessons to begin!)

I drafted the pattern myself (years ago). I found the fabric in the upholstery section of my local Jo-Anns, and it was a perfect match to some pink denim I had lying around!

There are three outer pockets on the front and the back, trimmed in a pink boa I picked up at Michaels. The embroidered little ballerinas grace both sides of the bad, and one graces the inside pocket.

On the handle I sewed a ballet slipper button and a ribbon bow.

The bag was a great hit with my oldest girl, then her sister, and now the youngest girl is all excited to use it!

I guess some things really are timeless.
