Long time, no see stranger! I’m thrilled to announce that I am heading back to Rwanda in January 2023 with International Organization for Women and Development. It’s been a long three years since I have been there and I am excited to start the process of preparing.
When I was last in Rwanda in early 2020, just a few weeks before COVID-19 took over the world, I purchased several yards of fabric from a local market. I didn’t have a plan for the fabric at that time, but I knew I would find a purpose (said every crafter ever). Over the last six months as I became an empty nester, I used the fabric to create some simple shoulder totes. I am selling them here to raise money for my trip, and am offering them to you first.
Each bag is a little different, and all but two are made with Rwandan printed fabric. Each bag is lined with a contrasting fabric. I am pricing them at $15 each, but I will gratefully accept a larger donation if that fits your budget. To order, you can leave a comment here or email me at photosinpink at gmail dot com.
I have a small quantity of additional fabric remaining, so if the bag you like disappears, I can potentially make more. I will mail them in time for the holidays 🙂
