About the pattern:

The whole project was born from this bag before I even started to crochet it.
My grandmother Siv died in breast cancer 35 years ago this year (2010) and becaouse of cancer my mother lost her mother when she was only 10 years old and me and my sister never got to know our grandmother. Some how I did miss her, I never known her, I’ve only seen one picture of her but I missed her and I was fasinated about her.
And now when I grown up and learned to know other persons I also got to know other brave and strong people whom been really ill and I think that’s why I decided to do this cause it could really happen to anyone and that’s why I find cancer so scary.
And the people on the bag all had cancer when they passed away and they are people most recognize because strong and wonderful persons in my life, you don’t want to crochet them do you?
