Fika Tote

Work with Cheryl to make this mid-sized tote. It has many features you’ll love, like two front pockets, a back lapped zipper pocket, interior pockets, and a recessed zipper closure.  It makes a great work, school, or overnight travel bag!  The word Fika is Swedish, meaning “to have coffee”.
