good for twinkle toes


I swear I have been thinking about this bag and procrastinating (mostly procrastinating) for a few months.  Abby's teacher has a 6 year old in dance classes and she asked me to make miss E a dance bag.  Hmmmmmm.  It has to be durable (canvas) and big enough for little tap and ballet shoes (check).  And of course it had to be spunky like the blonde haired, blue eyed little sprite herself.  I'm glad I waited and didn't just crank one out.  

I'm enjoying the last few weeks of calm (this is a relative term) before our summer activities begin.  The gals only have a bit over a week and a half left.  Can't wait!

What an awesome bag. I'm sure she is going to be touched that you made something as wonderful as this.

A fellow Kansan gave me your blog address ... I am a Kansas gal as well, and I have a blogroll called "Blog Kansas". If you would like to be a part of it, just drop me a line and let me know:)

Too cute! What a fun bag for a little ballet girl. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and leaving me such kind words about my scrap quilt. I really enjoyed making it. I hope my mommy loves it! Take Care!

Very cute Heidi! I want you to know I've missed reading your posts... I have been out of the loop for awhile. I started a new card business and have not had time for posts. I am glad to see all is well with you! I'll try to check in with you more often and not get 200 posts behind! ~Hjordi
