This iReport is part of an assignment:
Something old, something new
Recycle an old leotard into a new dance bag
My niece, Jo’s daughter, and one of their friends all joined the same ballet/tap dance class this year. They are having a blast spending time together and learning to dance. On class nights, they have to pack their dance shoes, hair ties, and a snack into a bag to take with them. I decided to help them celebrate their budding ballet skills by making them each a cute little tote bag to carry their stuff. Since the girls had recently outgrown several of their older leotards, I decided to use them as a basis for the bags. This was a great way to recycle the old leotards and give them new life! Jo was especially pleased with her daughter’s bag because it turned a favorite memento into a fun, new, and useful item that her daughter adores.
