This bag was inspired by its larger counterpart, the Sweet Retreat Bag. This perfectly sized tote is strong enough to carry books, laptops, and anything else you throw into it! The tote is quilted and the handles go around the bottom, offering extra support. The bag looks much more complicated than it actually is! The entire thing is constructed flat until the sides are added at the very end. There are two styles included in the pattern, a checkered version made with 2-1/2" strips and a whole cloth version. The bag looks great with fun large prints! There are pockets on the front, back, sides and inside the bag. The zipper is optional but incredibly easy to add.
