Carrying books to class? Need a casual bag? This versatile tote bag works up quickly and easily. Make it in any color you desire! Use acrylic for a softer tote or cotton for a stiffer one. The tree applique is a great way to use up small amounts of yarn you may have lying around. Follow the pattern’s suggested hook and yarn sizes or make your tote and applique bigger or smaller by using hooks and yarns of your choice.

This bag is named after my very good friend, Nicki.
