I made this for my sister who is raising an autistic child.  I started out with the embroidered heart, then had to figure out what to do with it.  I had this floral canvas hanging around so it seemed like a good idea to use it up on a tote bag for her.  I attached the embroidery as a pocket.  The pocket is reinforced with a medium weight interfacing and is lined with canvas so it will hold its shape when loaded.  The bag itself is only lined with cotton, no interfacing so it's pretty floppy. 



I hope she likes it when I give it to her in a few weeks.
