Hello!! As some of you may remember my daughter is on the dance competition team this year. Yay!!!! One of the things that makes life easier is a dance duffel bag with a clothes rack, so this dance mom started shopping. And then had a heart attack at the prices!!! There is basically one main company that makes these and this momma is not paying $150 or more for a bag!!!
So what’s a momma to do when buying does not work? I make my own with the help of my dad 🙂
This is the almost finished project. I still need to paint the pvc pipe. Notice our cat Sassy checking it out lol.
So the first thing I did was order a rolling duffel bag. I ordered a 26 inch duffel bag.
Next we started the frame work for the bag.
This is the base in the bottom of the bag. This folds into itself for easy storage and then you place your costumes and such in the bag for travel.
The 2 middle “legs” fold up.
Next piece added.
And finally the top bar.
Here it is all folded up into the bag. There is a black liner that zips over the top of all the pieces. I am looking forward to using this for competitions and recitals. Later I may look at adding a changing cloth to it. I have seen where people have done that before as well 😉
