TuTu Ballet Tote Bag

One of my favorite customers asked me to make a ballet tutu tote bag for her.  She is always coming up with great ideas.  Anyway, who knew tote bags were so hard to find these days?  I used to see them everywhere.  I was looking for a pink or black and I needed it pretty quick.  First, I headed to Hobby Lobby and found a package of totes with several colors, no pink and no black.  Then, I tried JoAnn's; they only carry cream.  Next, I went to the dollar store, they had a few that were already decorated and very poor quality.  My last stop was Michael's; like Hobby Lobby, they only sell totes in packages.  At least Michael's package had a hot pink I could use.  When I got home I gathered the supplies (tote bag, tulle and ribbon) and began my new project.  Look how cute it came out. 

I love, love, love it.  I listed it in my Etsy shop and I have already sold several.  I will certainly need to order these totes from my online source; unfortunately, pink and black are on back order.  Oh well.  :(

BTW,  I know the background is not the best in these pictures; but, I needed a sunny place and I was in a hurry.

Let me know what you think.
