Birthday Present for a Tiny Dancer

Bonus points for telling me who sings the song called Tiny Dancer (a great song,  I might add). DSCF4359

My little niece had a birthday yesterday.  She loves pink and she loves to dance.DSCF4358

I remembered Dana (from MADE) posted some cute ballet bags she made, so I followed the general idea of her Hobo Sack Tutorial to make this bag.  I used my silhouette to cut out the shape of the ballerina onto freezer paper.  I found some comfortable pants she can dance around in to put inside the bag.  DSCF4362

One easy and cute present for the adorable birthday girl!DSCF4365


  1. Such a great bag! Love the tulle, really finishes it off so nicely. She'll love it!

  2. Elton John! I wish my girls were still in dance... I'd have to make them a bag like that =)

  3. "....Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand. And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand ....." One of Elton John's best! I can only imagine she'll love it!

  4. My niece would adore this. Love that gray and black fabric. Thanks for the inspiration. And yes, that is a great song!

  5. I thought Tony Danza sang that ;)

  6. I totally snorted at Bethany's comment. Okay, adorable bag. You make such great stuff, Christie.

  7. Elton John... and Tim McGraw! Adorable bag - love the tulle bow!

  8. I love the pull through bow in the front!

    Just Better Together is having a giveaway!

  9. Great idea! Will be thieving it to make for my niece, thanks!
