This is the Hearts Aflutter Faux Leather Tote Bag which is a FREE sewing pattern for you to enjoy. And what a fabulous-looking Tote Bag this is. With its colorful hearts, it makes a perfect Valentine’s Day bag. Perfect for anyone with a romantic heart.
It’s both a pretty inexpensive and fun project to work on. The awesome designer, Sew Can Do, added a lining fabric and a cute decorative heart tag on the side.
With a roomy interior and inside pockets, it’s just the right size for carrying a few books, shopping, and usual purse stuff. It actually became the designer’s go-to bag and could also totally handle the snow blowing around outside too.
It’s also a quick sew, so making one can be done in record time.
