A New Venture
A friend of mine is into dance - ballroom, salsa, foxtrot, whatever. She retired from riding horses, and decided dancing was good exercise, and alot safer than being on the back of a horse!!!
She came to me one day with an old bag that she carried her dance shoes in, and asked if I could come up with something that she could use and sell to the other dancers.
I do make bags from recycled things, like placemats, curtain tie backs, vintage fabric, so I took her ideas and came up with this.
She loved it, and the shoe bag/carryall is making its debut at dance class tonite! I am working on some other styles and ideas,with brighter colors, so she can take a selection to class.
This lined bag was made from a table runner,with a curtain tie back handle, and vintage rickrack and beaded trim. It is a split design, so you can put one shoe in each side.
I guess I'll wait til tomorrow and see if they liked it!!! Fingers crossed!!!
