Inspired by this Prudent Baby tutorial, I adapted the French pouf design by using some scrap fabric I had on hand.
I added some beads to the center of the poufs and safety pinned them to the canvas bag (although I could have hand sewn them, I kind of like that they're removable and I could reposition them later, if needed).
The project was complete after I added some ribbon as trim to the top and then used fabric paint to write the word "Ballet." (I must admit that I should have matched the pinks better, but it still turned out pretty sweet.)
My daughter now totes her beautified bag to ballet/tap class! This would make a cute gift, don't you think?
