Bolivian mama and her baby

A bolsita is Spanish for small bag. I went through my zipper stash and my fabric to create 18 small bolsitas for my upcoming trip to Bolivia this month. I plan to fill each bag with a few goodies and hand them out to women who participate in our health projects.

I went through my fabric and intentionally used pieces given to me by friends. I like the idea of women helping other women through art.

Thank you True Epicure

This fabric came from Eva, of True Epicure. Thank you!

Thank you Funky Finds

The lining fabric — colorful shoes — came from Jessica of Funky Finds. Gracias, amiga!

Thank you FinnyKnits

And Miss Finny, one of my favorite people, left this batik behind when crafting at my house. I love it paired with the bright African yellow lining!

Here’s is where you can help: I need suggestions on what to include in the bags. I need to keep each bag’s goodies at $5 or less. I’m thinking socks, chapstick, postcard of Arizona, bandana, energy bar and Hersey’s kiss.

What do you think these ladies would like? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
