Ballet is not an inexpensive activity. Even with our public charter school for homeschoolers paying a third of the cost over the year, it is very cost prohibitive. And they will need new pointe shoes in four months as well. So, we are making pointe shoe/soft shoe bags to sell at the studio. The ribbon closure is sewed to the back so it won't fall off. $3 for a plain bag, $4 with a pocket and $5 with a pocket and button or zipper. The girls are in charge, but I can be seen hovering, cajoling and fixing the machine when the foot falls off yet again.
