Pattern Parcel #7: Barcelona Bag

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Good morning! Today is my stop on Pattern Parcel #7 tour, which is all about handbags. The ladies involved in the tour sewed up some AMAZING creations, and this parcel is most definitely one to purchase. If you do not know about what PPP is, keep reading!

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

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.

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

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

Bonus Pattern:
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!

I sewed up the Barcelona Bag, and I really like the finished product. *This bag is located on the bottom right of the first photo* I looked through all the patterns included in the parcel, and the Barcelona  was the fit for me! It is a big bag for starters, which means for this mom of two it can hold the right amount of "treasures" as well as baby essentials. OH, and it comes with a WALLET! 2 for 1.




As seen in the parcel photo, the Barcelona is intended for some intense pattern mixing with beautiful, designer quality fabrics. Though I love the pattern as it, I can do without the ruffles and pink most of the time. So instead I went for a color palate of golds, browns and black with patterns that didn't exactly match, but paired nicely together. I also extended the shoulder strap by 3" to sit just right with my body. We all know the purse has to fit perfectly, or then you won't get any use out of it otherwise :)




I don't know about you, but I LOVE the fabrics together. I actually really enjoy this pattern too. There is so much room to make adjustments, add inside pockets, make it smaller... the list goes on. Most definitely a great pattern to hack and use as a base for a completely different bag! Plus, the wallet pattern is simply perfect. I see plenty of Barcelona wallets being made for Christmas :)
