Preppy Weekender Tote and Wristlet for Nicky

Nicky was looking for a small bag with a comfortable cross body strap for a motorcycle trip and couldn't find what she was looking for anywhere. She wanted to keep the overall size compact and have it fall on a certain spot at her hip.

After chatting about what colors and patterns Nicky prefers, I immediately thought of the Moda Cape Ann fabrics by Oliver & S. I mixed that collection with a brown that has a subtle tone on tone swirly pattern that adds nice texture.

Let's take a closer look at the wristlet...

Nicky wanted mostly brown with a pop of color for her small bag. We measured her stuff (essentials like cell, camera, cash, and cards) and then I backed into the sizing for her small bag. Then, this new "Nicky sized" wristlet was born!



Inside the wristlet...

It's a little taller and not as wide side to side. It's amazing what a difference .5-1" this way or that way can make on a small bag.

I designed it so the same cross body strap can be attached to both the wristlet and the overnight bag. I also did the usual wristlet strap for her small bag so she has options.

Okay, let's check out this zippered overnight bag. I love how preppy and summery it is!

Nicely lined up side seams on the tote bag exterior

Lots and lots of pockets inside!

Swivel hook for keys or she can also clip her wristlet to the inside of her tote.

Extra long, comfy tote bag handles plus a cross body strap option!
