I finished something, yay for me....
After reading a post about it on Dawn's blog I decided to make this easy bag pattern that Dawn designed to help raise funds for the people of Baseco - a slum area in Manila. All of the money raised from the sale of the bag pattern (with the exception of Etsy fees - 20c) will be donated to the people of Baseco through Mark and Christine Pedder, you can read about their work here.
Dawn is hoping to sell 1000 of the patterns. I found it to be a really easy bag to make and the pattern was easy to follow. It comes to you as a PDF file which Dawn will email to you very quickly, so no waiting for the postie.
The bag is actually quite a bit brighter than the photo suggests, it gave me a chance to use some Kaffe Fassett fabrics that I've had for a while. While I like the button (toggle??) I'm not sure about the colour (it was the only one I had) though.
