Tote bag with heart

My new favorite bag!

 A few weeks ago, my grandmother gave me some cotton. She found it somewhere at the ceiling. It was about 30 years old, it has some spots in it... but it's white, so that's not a problem. After you made your work, put it in some water with some chlorine, and it will be perfect white again.
The moment I saw the cotton, I knew what I was going to make. A TOTE BAG!
I used the filet crochet technique. Perfect to make figures within your crochet work. I decided to make a lovely heart, it's clear to see when you use it.
Furthermore I bought some leather handles, with gives the bag a tougher appearance.

Do you want to filet crochet something as well, check out this site for some explanation (in English and Dutch).

Have a nice weekend!
