A Stitch in Time

These vibrant cloth totes are a celebration of color and pattern. Designer Nicole Sanders pieces them together from a carnival assortment of bright, 100% cotton swatches. And the party continues inside, because each bag is completely reversible, giving you a double set of colors to play with. The bag's inside contains a single, roomy compartment, with a pocket on the outside (or the inside, depending on how you are displaying it). Whether you're toting your daily essentials, groceries, picnic provisions or baby supplies, you'll be carrying some extra cheer with you. The bags share a particular color pallet, but each one contains a unique combination of fabrics, making each a one-of-a-kind creation. Handmade in Chicago, IL.

  • the maker

Nicole Sanders

Sunflower Chicago was started as an outlet for my need to create beautiful things. My mom is an amazing seamstress and I have always admired her God-given talents. Her nurturing influence encouraged me to begin exploring the art of the needle myself. i find that making beautiful and functional creations enhances and brings new life to my roles as a woman, daughter,wife and mother.

      Comments about PATCHWORK BAG:

      These bags are beautiful! I have given them as gifts after I received one as a gift last year. They are washable and do not lose their vibrancy or structure afterwards. They are a great size for any number of activities - going out, heading to the farmers market, etc. The shoulder strap is adjustable so the bag can be worn over the shoulder or across the chest as a messenger type bag. Elegant, stylish, and really practical too. Great product!

      Handmade, colorful, and reversible. This tote has it all! Would you take Nicole Sanders' colorful creation on the go yourself, or would you love to gift it to a friend who loves bold bags?

      Love the colors and versatility. They are lovely and unique. Love the price!

      Unique, but I have no need for them, so my opinion wouldn't be valid.

      I can hand make the same bag for a fraction... Waaaaaaay to expensive.

      I've seen these around for much less $$. I love that they're handmade and who can't use a bag or tote? $65 is just too expensive.

      I'm sure the high price is for labor rather than materials, but once the artist can find out a more efficient way to produce these, I'm sure she will find an audience, although they are not my taste.

      Definitely more than a stylish than your common tote. Great fabric combinations.

      What a beautiful combination of colors and patterns! I see this line extended to diaper bags, wallets, backpacks, and maybe combined with some leather or neoprene.

      Its a lot cheaper to buy the materials and make it yourself. If you make it yourself than you'll be able to choose the fabric and fabric patterns. Don't forget a lot cheaper this way.

      A little to high in price for me.

      For $65 I could go to the fabric shop, buy scraps, and make a dozen or so - if I were so inclined.
