Fika Tote Class

Fika is a Swedish word, meaning ‘to have coffee’.  The classic clean lines of this mid-sized tote give a nod to my Scandinavian heritage.  The Fika Tote has plenty of features you’ll love, like front pockets, a back lapped zipper pocket, recessed zipper closure and padded pockets.  Take this tote on your next visit with friends!

Special features:

·         two front pockets for things you need to keep close at hand

·         back lapped zippered pocket

·         optional recessed zipper (it's optional, but I know you'll love it!)

·         makes a great work or student bag, padded interior pockets can accommodate most laptop sizes


Skill Level: Intermediate (this is a fairly straightforward sew, but due to the number of pieces and size of the tote I classify this pattern as Intermediate) an adventurous Advanced Beginner could also tackle this project - just takes a bit of organization 


Approx. Finished Dimensions: 17” wide, 15” tall, 5” deep
