I am proud to have completed this bag for my daughter. She was super excited to show it to her ballet teacher last week. This bag was a mix of paper piecing, improv and a little hint of a bag pattern. I cam across a really cool ballerina shoe pattern from Tartan Kiwi a few months ago, and knew right away that I wanted to make a "Brown ballerina" for my little brown ballerina.
I remembered seeing a tote bag I liked from the S.O.T.A.K. handmade blog, and I bought her pattern. I just used it for the handles and drawstring of the tote and finished the rest as usual. I made the back initials using an alphabet PP pattern
