How does Perfect Pattern Parcel work?
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.

As soon as I received this Parcel I knew I was going to make the Daphne Bag. It is everything I dream about in a bag, a patchwork top to feature some great fabrics, I used some fabric from the Cotton and Steel line. It is slouchy, but has some structure to it so you don’t feel like you are carrying a grocery sack. I am a sucker for interior pockets and this one features a zipper pocket and a slip pocket. They are perfect for storing my phone and keys so I am not fumbling in the bottom of my bag for my stuff. It is also very roomy without feeling bulky. With 2 kids I need all the space in my bag that I can get, but I don’t want to feel like I am still carrying a diaper bag. An adjustable strap is always a must have in my book. I actually used the strap and hardware from an old purse that I no longer used and feel like it works perfectly on this bag.
