Playing Hookie- Dancer Bag



This is a LONG over due post, but yea it's totally been one of those kind of weeks, SIGH...I've been meaning to post this since last Tuesday when I finally finished it, but the days got away from me in all the mommy craziness.

So today's Hookie project that I'm featuring goes along with last weeks dancer theme. Do you remember the leg warmers that I made up for my daughter? Okay, so I took Bean to dance two weeks ago and decided that I was tired of lugging all of dance shoes to dance class in a sad little grocery sack, not to mention that all the other adorable little dancers in her class were sporting the cutest dancer bags. (Who knew dancers had so much gear?) I stayed with the dancing theme on this one and decided that I would naturally make Bean a dancer bag in my favorite of favorite mediums...crochet! I searched through my library of patterns and sure enough I found a cute drawstring backpack pattern, with a fun design, and gathered my supplies and got to work.
So here were my supplies:

A skein of Hot Pink, White and Black Sugar' n Cream cotton yarn and a G hook, oh and some matching ribbon.

So, this project was a little more intensive a project, not hard, but just more time consuming. With the constant interruptions and working on it whenever I could find a minute, I got it done I'd say over the span of 3 days. By the next dance class, Bean had her super cute dance bag to show off...
The perfect size to hold all her dancing gear!
Love the ribbon straps!

And here's a picture of both crochet dance projects making their first dance class appearance...so cute I could almost cry she looks like a real little dancer.

So this week later, I'll show you some new Hookie projects that I'm working on! Super cute! Stay tuned and happy Hooking!
