Dance Bags - DT post for 3 Girl Jam

Happy Monday my fellow bloggers.  Today is my Design Team day for 3 Girl Jam and I want to share some of 3 Girl Jam's Stateline muslin bags that I decorated for my older girls to use in their dance bags.  Both of my older girls are on pointe in their ballet training and that means extra accessories in their dance bags - bandaids, nail clippers, toepads, etc. .  .  Well, I thought these bags would make a great storage solution for some of those smaller items.  I used the 5 x 7 sized Stateline bags for this project.  I also used some Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV)  that I had purchased a year ago and never used since.  I have to tell you I am in love with HTV!!  It cut out so well with my Cameo and ironed on easily with my regular ole iron set on high.   I also pulled out the drawstring and inserted some Tuxedo crinkle ribbon from the 3 Girl Jam Celebrations Bundle.  I added my daughters' names on the backside in case so they would know whose bag was whose.  The font I used was "Lobster" and the svg for the ballet shoes was one that I picked up awhile ago in the Craftedge forum.

This project went together so easily and quite quickly too!!  I see myself doing more of these in the future for gifts - afterall, a lot of my daughters' friends are dancers too!!
