Pattern Parcel #7 - My Selection, The Butterfly Sling

By now, I'm sure you have heard about Pattern Parcel #7.  If not, you better pay attention because your time is running out to get this great parcel of fantastic handbags.  I know they are great because I have made three of them (some multiple times)...all winners.  First let me tell you about Perfect Pattern Parcel if you are not familiar with this concept.  Here is their description.

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.

Here are the bags that are included with this parcel.  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 and Betty Bowler by Swoon Sewing Patterns.
Pattern Parcel #7: Choose your own price and support DonorsChoose. Win/win!

 BONUS PATTERN:  Choose a price of $32 or greater for Parcel #7 and you will automatically also be sent the Bonus Pattern! That's just over $5 a pattern. The Bonus Pattern for this Parcel is the brand new Daphne Bag pattern from Clover & Violet. The Daphne is a slouchy satchel that can be worn cross body or as a shoulder bag. The zip top keeps your gear secure and the internal pockets keep your accessories where you need them. This is a brand new, never been seen before pattern and is an exclusive opportunity for Parcel #7 customers!

Let me show you the Butterfly Sling that I made.  I have had this fabric for awhile and wanted to use both sides of it.  One side is navy with natural color nubs on it and the other side is natural with the navy hue to it.

This is a fun bag  to make.  This is my fifth one!  The bag is designed to be able to reach the things you need most often without opening the bag.  Your ID, charge card or money and phone are easily accessible.  There are 12 other card pockets for all of your other cards.

This bag is from Janelle at Emmaline Bags and I am sure you will love it like I do.

I can't wait to try some of the others.
