A paper sewing pattern by Noodlehead.

Fika is a Swedish word, meaning ‘to have coffee’. The classic clean lines of this mid-sized tote give a nod to Anna's (of Noodlehead) 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.


Special features:

  • Two front pockets for things you need to keep close at hand
  • Back lapped zipped pocket
  • Optional recessed zip (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 it is classified as Intermediate.) An adventurous Advanced Beginner could also tackle this project - just takes a bit of organization
