My daughter is four and a half. She's the girliest tomboy I've ever met. When we were making plans for what to do over the summer break, she wanted to take ballet classes. Since her ballet classes are on the same day as swimming lessons, we knew we wouldn't be able to make it home to change into her dance clothes. It seemed a very good excuse to make her a little ballet bag!
This is the wonderful Bento lunch bag tutorial from Ayumi. It's really a perfect little bag. Cute and stylish with some lovely details in the construction that make the whole thing sew up like a dream. I especially like the drawstring cover that lets things stay securely inside even when a certain four and a half year old swings the bag like a lasso.
The cute ballet fabric is a Japanese cotton canvas print from Cool Cottons. Handles and drawstring cover are Alexander Henry farmdale and heath. The blue dot is an unknown from my stash.
This is the third or fourth time I've used this pattern and I love it. Go make one for yourself!!!
