Look what I made with my Cricut....

My DD starts dance class next week and she needed a bag to put her stuff in, so I made her one using my Cricut and Hello Kitty Font cart. What do you think????

I bought a plain black bag at Michael's and altered it. I used "Heat N Bond" Ultra hold iron-on adhesive. I ironed the heat n bond onto a strip of my fabric first, cut it with my cricut and then I ironed it on to the bag. I did the shadow feature for the pink and reg feature for the other fabric to layer on top. For the top of the bag I just sewed a piece of material around the bag and then sewed the frilly stuff over it.
