The end of the year is fast approaching and I have to think of something quick or make something quick that I can sell and that will help me raise funds for the Clean water tank project of the Christina Noble Children's Foundation. They aim to install clean water tanks for at least 100 families in Vietnam and my support to the foundation to help raise funds ends at the end of the year. So this is what I ended up with today. Create handmade totes to sell for $20.00 each. And the full proceeds from the sale will be donated to them and a tax receipt will be issued under the purchaser's name with a donated amount as the amount paid for the tote. I have so many fabrics from my collection so many to handle that I think this is the best idea. At the same time, I will have less fabrics in my cabinet.
This is the first of the totes that I will be sewing. It uses Christmas fabrics, 100 % cotton and fully lined. For this particular bag, the lining is the same christmas fabric as the fabric for the tote only the color is different. The tote measures about 33.5cms x 41cms and has a base of 7cms. Tote can be reversed if needed to.
The $20.00 is value for money and is for a good cause. Also, very environmentally friendly. You can use it for shopping instead of the plastic bags. That is hitting two birds with one stone. So check it out. Click on the image above and please make a purchase if you need one today. Thank you.
