Dance Bag Happy Dance



I finally finished Katie's new dance bag. It is on Aida, which I haven't stitched on in forever and half. I stitched it with some mystery pink varigated silk from my stash - I think it might be from a Dinky Dyes ooopps pack.

I have a tendency to believe that since I'm stitching something all in one floss color that it will be sooo so easy and quick. Yeah, not so much. I kept losing my place in the pattern with no color changes to go by and also it was kinda tedious and boring. Oh well, I'm reasonably happy with the result and Katie loves having a unique bag that I stitched. Just glad she is still young enough to appreciate stuff mom makes. Soon enough I suppose she'll only want the ultra cool brand name bag that all the other kids have - so I'll enjoy that while it lasts. :)

Great finish! And twenty years from now those girls won't remember the brand name of those bags, but Katie will remember her Mom made hers. And that it was awesome.

Lovely finish! Love the pink on blue colour.

Great bag, Jenny.

I agree with Missy Ann - Katie will remember the bag that you made for her when she was little - I remember the sweaters my mum knitted for me, although at the time, I wished that I had a store bought sweater!

You bet Katie will love that bag forever! It is very cute.

It looks wonderful! And I completely agree with the others. *This* is the bag she will remember!
