Amazing Grace Weekly Featured Pattern!!

Amazing Grace Tote

Amazing Grace Tote Bag

When I designed this Free Pattern, I was picturing this bag to be given to a patient for their chemo appointments… They could fill it with a light weight blanket, book, crocheting or any items they need to help them pass the time while receiving their treatment. It is a fun and simple project and could brighten the day of someone suffering or recovering from cancer!!
