Fika is a Swedish word, meaning ‘to have coffee’. The classic clean lines of this mid-sized tote give a nod to Anna's 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!
Skill Level: Intermediate (this is a fairly straightforward sew, but due to the number of pieces and size of the tote this pattern is classified as intermediate) an adventurous advanced beginner could also tackle this project - it just takes a bit of organization!
