A Quick Ballet Tote for Mini

This project has really been a long time coming.  So long, I don't remember when I purchased the rhinestone applique.  This is the third year since E has danced ballet, so it was well before she quit that I would have picked it up.  (on clearance, of course)
No matter, Mini is taking ballet now, and was in need of a bag, mostly so we have a place to keep her shoes in between classes.  Gotta keep those slippers clean!  I asked what she wanted and she requested "rainbow".  I pulled out a few options for her from the stash and her first choice was the hearts.  I chose the stripes for the lining. 
And so, a small tote for Mini.  She adores it.  Took it to nap and slept with it, which is always a sure sign of approval. 
It is the perfect size for a pair of slippers, and a couple other items as well, if needed. 
Technically, since it is fully lined, it is also reversible, should she choose. 

Mini wanted to carry her stuffed animals around in it, and I had to remind her that it was for ballet, so she has now requested another tote.  This one with the stripes on the outside.  I will probably make it a bit bigger as well.

This one finished at 11" x 2" x 9"

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it Friday

I'm not surprised that Mini likes her tote. It is SEW cute (and sparkly!!)
