(Not so) Tiny Dancer.

My daughter starts dance class on Saturday. She has everything she needs: ballet slippers, tap shoes, a leotard, and stockings. All she needed was a cute little bag to carry her shoes in.
That was my job!

I sketched a ballet shoe and her initial. I then transferred it to thrifted fabric (used the taping to window technique) and then embroidered the design and then constructed a simple tote. I am quite please with how it turned out.

Added bonus: everything (except the thread to sew the bag together) was purchased at a thrift store!
