My kids have a HUGE dancing obsession lately. Lu mostly fuels this obsession...we've nicknamed her happy feet because she's literally dancing everywhere. Not only does she dance everywhere...but she's so focused on her feet that she dances INTO everything. My poor uncoordinated kid! I think those uncoordinated genes come from me!
Ellie is happily following along with her older sister's obsession, even if I do think that gymnastics probably suits her personality a whole lot better than ballet. Ellie realized this past week though that she STILL didn't have a bag to keep her ballet shoes in (while Lu's had one for YEARS). So yeah, I guess it was about time for me to throw a bag together for Ellie.my animal loving Ellie to want a dancing dog on her bag! So silly! I just sewed around the edges of my bag fabric to secure it, and then it was as simple as making a draw string bag.
What I loved best about this bag though was that I literally threw it together in less than an hour...just in time for dance class.
Keep reading below for the complete how to!
I folded over each of the edges (on the open side) to make a nice clean end for the drawstring to come out.
Then I sewed up the remaining side seam.
Finally I used a safety pin to run the cording through the passage way that I created at the beginning.
