Memory Tote

I had previously purchased 5 Memory Bears which were absolutely beautiful and extremely well made. I have referred others to The Patchwork Bear since then. I then decided to order a Memory Tote Bag and it did not disappoint. I love it as much as the Bears. Jen and her Team due an amazing job and each item is so well made and well worth the money. I will continue to recommend people to The Patchwork Bear.
