My daughter, Brynlee, just finished 9 weeks of her very first little "pre-ballet" class. It was the cutest thing I think I have ever seen!!!!
And she loved it!! So, of course I signed her up for another round starting in January...this time with tap class too! And I thought we better get serious about this dancing thing if we want her to be a star (totally sarcastic here)! Really, I just wanted an excuse to make her a super cute little dance bag. After looking around the internet for a little inspiration, I decided to go with the over-the-top Tutu Bag. I made the pattern up for the tote bag, then added the fun "tutu" and blingy name (although, I had to go with Bryn, instead of Brynlee b/c I didn't have any more "E's").
The inside is lined with pink and black zebra print and has 4 pockets inside for her ballet and tap shoes. The top closes with a simple ribbon bow.
I'm going to give it to her for Christmas...I hope she likes it as much as she loves dancing!
