Sewing for charity

My friend Jackie is relentless in her efforts to help the poor, sick and destitute children in Mongolia. She works together with the Christina Noble Children's Foundation and as she is having a stall at a farmer's market in April I have made a few things for her to sell.
 1. pencil cases (tutorial here)  2. tissue covers (tutorial here) 3. coasters (tutorial here
And from the same Japanese fabric I made these tote bags,
  a bunch of these tissue covers using this tutorial,
a couple of Dr. Seuss book bags,
two silk bags from leftover silks
and two little cosmetic bags.
My friend Jeanette made these two string bags, also to be sold at the market. 
Wouldn't they make lovely knitting bags?

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your week is going well.

You've been busy. They are all beautiful and decidedly saleable goodies. Your friend will have no problem selling these.

What a coincidence! I'm making the same tissue covers with a group of friends in S'pore for the Cheshire Home. Or maybe it is not surprising as hand tissues are part of the survival kit of any proper Singaporian. Hope the sale goes well!

Bless you, Vreni. These are all beautifully made items for such a good cause.

Im Gegensatz zu mir warst du ja megafleißig. Ich hoffe, alles findet seinen Abnehmer, damit was in die Kasse kommt für den guten Zweck.
Das TatüTa Tutorial...das sieht ja wirklich total einfach aus. Muß ich mal ausprobieren.
