Hearts on Fire: my project

Welcome to the last day of the Hearts on Fire Blog Hop! 'Hope you have been visiting and enjoying all of the creative projects. Since the heart could not be red, I chose my favorite color: green. This tote is a pattern that I just made-up. It features a reverse appliqued strip-pieced heart on the front. It is 2 1/2" deep inside. The tote measures 14" SQ, and has a concealed inside zipper. This way, a fastener does not interfere with the heart design. The shoulder strap makes the tote easily carried. The entire tote has a heavy weight fusible interfacing. Many thanks to Carol of: Just Let Me Quilt for hosting yet another awesome blog hop. Be sure to visit and comment on every project. Have a smile-filled happy day!

  11. Great tote bag. I love all the little techniques you used in it. Zippers and shoulder straps are the best, especially after I dropped my bag at the Atlanta Airport years ago and everything rolled under a taxi! LOL.

  13. I love the green heart. I haven't done reverse applique in years but your tote reminds me that I should give it a try again. The tote its self is a great design. Love the zipper being out of the way. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Such a beautiful green heart bag...I love it! Doing the reversed applique (something I'm just learning to do) makes the heart pop right out to make the eye land there. Your stitching on this looks incredible! Thank you so much, Danice, for sharing your no-red heart and hopping with us! xo
