There were so many great bags being made by people attending The Sewing Summit, that I wanted to make one too. I needed a bag to function as both a tote and handbag. I decided on the Nikki Tote by Michelle of Paisley Pear Quilts.
The pattern is easy to follow, with simple instructions. The bag was more than big enough for all my regular handbag stuff plus a few extra travel necessities. I wish I had added a closure to the top though. (My bag fell over when I was getting out of a car and my phone fell out.) Overall, I'm very happy with how this came out.
