A ballet bag.....

Is a must for every budding ballerina in which to carry her ballet shoes and seeing that Miss M starts ballet lessons this week that gorgeous girly fabric - which came out of the scrap bag that I showed you yesterday - was measured, cut and sewed into a drawstring backpack.    There was not enough in the length of the ballerina fabric to use as the front completely so I added a strip of the pale pink ribbon and music notes fabric at the top and bottom to centre the ballerinas  and used the dot fabric for the lining and backing.     I had the "ballerina pink" tape for the drawstrings so I was able to complete the bag in one go without having to race off to the shops.   Using the overlocker certainly speeds things up.


Pop on over to Gone Stitchin' to see what else was created overnight.

Happy sewing all
