Zip-It Up: Nickita Bag

Next up on my Zip-It-Up class is the Nickita bag, a little brick-shaped bag.

Once again fabric selection seemed to take more time than actual bag construction, because I have to find a coordinating pair, and that's pretty hard for me. Finally, I picked a bright hot pink rococo-looking pattern fabric for the outside, a completely non-matching throwaway fat quarter for the inside / lining, but for the handles that should coordinate with the hot pink ... I simply used the wrong side of the hot pink fabric.

I love the shape of this bag, but next time I would make it a little bigger. However, for the first go-around, I decided to play it safe and follow the pattern exactly. It was about as easy to make as Runaround. I think my favorite part is boxing the corners! Video instruction, especially from a good teacher, truly makes all the difference.
