I loved the way the first dance bag I made turned out. I loved it so much that I made one for Sierra as well. She started dance back in September and since then she’s been carrying this way-too-big-for-a-3-year-old cinch bag that I got at a triathlon. It worked in that it carried stuff, but it wasn’t ideal.
Sierra’s favorite color is green, so I used this fun polka dot fabric and made the dancer applique in green. Fun!
Like the last dance bag, I added a fun detail with the green hardware on the bag.
The dance bag has a large velcro pocket on the back and the flap is secured with velcro as well for easy in/easy out for a 3-year-old.
The inside is: green denim! Do you think I overdid the green? I don’t think so; Sierra loves it, and that’s the most important thing.
As I was making this (second) dance bag, I realized that this size of small messenger bag is exactly the size and sort of bag I preferred to carry before I was carrying a diaper bag most of the time. Which led me to think that perhaps with an additional pocket and longer straps, I could make these for grown-ups as well. If only there were a way to find out if people would be interested. Guess I’ll never know if I don’t just go for it, right?
