Perfect Pattern Parcel #7

Pattern Parcel #7: Choose your own price and support DonorsChoose. Win/win

You're almost out of time to get your hands on the Perfect Pattern Parcel #7.  (Ends Friday.) This one is all about handbags!! :)  Even though bags are one of my favorite things to make, I had such a hard time choosing one to make this time around!  Finally, I decided that I should make a bag for one of my nieces.  Here's a (not so great, lol) picture of Lily.
As you can see, she is a HUGE fan of Hello Kitty! ;)
After much deliberation, I picked the Barcelona Bag by Pat Bravo.
I switched things up a little and used one solid piece of fabric for the bag instead of piecing the front.  Yes, it made construction much quicker, but the real reason is that I couldn't find my larger Hello Kitty scraps.   May be time to sort my fabrics again, lol! ;)

Normally I would say that this bag is much too big for a 4 year old, but it actually may be the perfect size to carry pjs and a blankie to Aunt Laura's house.  It will also prove to be great for storing all of the treasures she is sure to accumulate this week. HA!

No smiles this time. :)

How Pattern Parcel Works:
Here at Perfect Pattern Parcel, we believe in supporting independent pattern designers. It’s our opinion that indie patterns are just, well, better than big box patterns, and we’re pretty sure our customers think so too. So, we allow customers to show their support in naming their own price for each Parcel.  We also encourage customers to allocate part of their Parcel price to the charity in order to help classrooms in need. Pattern Parcel donates all profits after expenses from Parcel sales to the charity as well. Its our goal to raise over $20,000 for Donors Choose this year.
Parcel #7 includes:
Barcelona Bag and Wallet by Pat Bravo
Butterfly Sling Purse by Emmaline Patterns
Evelyn Hangbag by ChrisW Designs
Midtown Messenger Bag by Betz White
Betty Bowler by Swoon Sewing Patterns
BONUS PATTERN: Daphne Bag by Clover & Violet 
Bonus Pattern:
