With the girls annual dance concert coming up and 7 costumes to protect I thought it would be fun to make up some costume bags. I used Japara fabric which is 100% cotton and I have just found out is waxed and repels water (fantastic). I really love the texture of Japara which is often used in pillows and quilts to prevent goose/duck down from excaping the weave. I also made my own bias to add a bit of difference.
I used a shop bought plastic garment bag to make my own design and added a shorter zipper to create a large pocket in which they can chuck thier costumes into after each dance to ensure each piece comes home and does not get left behind.
A large outside pocket to hold shoes or other bits and pieces.
