Paige started dance last week and she needed a bag to take her dance shoes back and forth to the studio. It turned out great. The strap is a little wider then need be, but it works. I think my next attempt will be to change the inside a bit more to accommodate a change purse and include straps with velcro for her shoes, but for now it's great. I think it would have made this project much easier to follow a set patterns, instead of flying by the seat of my pants... but that's the fun of sewing and creating right?
