Not heard of pattern parcel before?
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 Donorschoose.org 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

BONUS PATTERN: Daphne Bag by Clover & Violet
This is a great selection a bags, a perfect bag for every occasion. Treat yourself or a friend to some new patterns, great timing for the christmas season.
Choose a price of $32 or greater for Parcel #6 and you will automatically also be sent the Bonus Pattern! That’s only $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!
Another first was sewing a zipper closure and turned the lining/main bag to the correct side out, but I need not to have worried, it worked:)
My fabric choices were a cotton patterned skirt, former curtain as accent fabric, and a fabric remnant for lining. I love the fact the pattern encourages readers to think about upcycling fabrics:) I struggled to buy the hardware locally, so ended up at the local charity shop yesterday in order to buy an old bag for the hardware for the strap.
The vibrant colours are great fun.
The bag has an internal padded pocket designed to hold and protect tablets, an external pocket perfect for an A4 notebook and two slip pockets at the front – what’s not to like?
I’m planning on making the Barcelona Bag next.
Why not treat yourself to some new patterns?
