Horsin’ Around with the Perfect Pattern Parcel!

Pattern Parcel #7: Choose your own price and support DonorsChoose. Win/winWho is ready to do a little self care sewing? Yes ladies, you deserve it! What better to sew than a new purse? Not your thing (I totally understand, but you may want to make an exception this time) then perhaps make one to give as a gift. The holidays are looming closer! Now add giving to charity with some gift or self care sewing and you have the perfect excuse to buy the Perfect Pattern Parcel #7! It is here! I know I love getting the parcel. Great patterns, great price, great impact, what more could I ask for.



Don’t know what the pattern parcel is? Well over at Perfect Pattern Parcel they support independent (inde) designers by helping us sewists to purchase these patterns at a name your own price bundle! They also donate all the profits after expenses from the sales to charity. This year the goal is to raise over $20,000 for Donors Choose. This is the last parcel of the year so we need your help to go out with a bang!


There are parcel prices of $20-$58 and even a custom option for those that want to donate extra. Now if you spend $32 or more you get the bonus pattern! Trust me when I say you don’t want to miss the bonus pattern. It’s an exclusive release for the Pattern Parcel and the bag I chose to make!

Pattern Parcel #7: Choose your own price and support DonorsChoose. Win/winThis is the brand new Daphne Bag from Clover & Violet. RTC_7422This good size slouchy satchel has options for cross body or shoulder strap that closes with a zipper. On the inside it has a zipper pocket and an open pocket. Now this pattern typically features a more pieced and quilted look as that is how the pattern is supposed to be. RTC_7424I wanted to feature my much coveted Cotton and Steele horse fabric so I decided to do a non quilted version. I just love it! It is a good size bag that I can use for just about anything. There is plenty of space to hold not only my wallet, phone and keys, but also to stash a couple extra diapers, wipes, and snacks for the kids with room to spare. RTC_7419I am a mama of 3 kids so this purse is a great way to have a little fashion without sacrificing function! I especially love the detail of the tab on the zipper!


Yes that is my horse modeling my bag for me.  I didn’t have anyone to take a photo of me with my awesome new bag so I improvised.  He was such a good sport!  He carries it pretty well if you ask me.  I think his friends where even a little jealous!
