The idea really sprang to my mind. I started off sewing a quite basic tote bag (checked pattern). It was the very 1st bag I designed and created and even on the sewing machine it took me a while to finish it. It wasn’t exactly easy either. But somehow I finished it and thought it looked still a bit lame. So I began to make little fabric brooches (with buttons and some other things on them). It looked a lot more interesting afterwards, but still not interesting enough for me! I decided to iron on a heart (checked pattern, of course) et voilà, it was finished! The ‘Strange Heart Tote Bag’.
