I’m at it again. With a model and muse like this doll of gal shown here, how could I resist making more and more bags for her to carry! And with such a wonderful goal in mind- to create a How To and bag design intended for children- this project has resulted in a bountiful collection of accessories for this doll and prototypes for the OLPC project.

The prototype I’ve illustrated in this weeks How To is quite easy to make. If you find yourself with some time, I’d love to see what you might come up with using the techniques I’ve illustrated and the concept of a How To that can be translated easily and understood by children, using materials that might be readily available in developing countries. For more information about OLPC, see this and if you are interested in working as an intern or sharing ideas with the amazing group of people that make this possible, click here.
