Make your gift-giving special with hand-crafted, durable, and reusable bags using beautiful woven fabrics! The Nicholas gift bag is inspired by the centuries old legend of a medieval bishop known for his kindness and generosity throughout his lifetime. Easy to customize: choose from three sizes, add a single handle or a pair of handles, skip the handles and simply turn the top edge down for a cuff. And to top it off, this bag is reversible, so there are lots of options to thoughtfully give a gift!

Nicholas Bags

I've made the small Nicholas bag solely out of fabric. Outside was black and white polka dots, and the inside was black and white checks. I also made the medium size Nicholas bag out of cork. The bag was filled with two phone holders along with a Sallie Tomato Sophie purse that I made for the recipient. I will definitely make more Nicholas bags for gift giving. Sorry no picts don"t know how to do that. have a good day Barb R

So wonderful to hear this. Lucky recipient! Please like our Youtube channel so you do not miss out on new tutorials as well as I recommend joining our Sallie Tomato Patterns and Hardware group for more inspiration. We appreciate you.

Who we are

sallie tomato

Hello, my name is Jessica Barrera and I'm the Founder of Sallie Tomato. I originally opened my shop in 2014 during college. I began by selling items that I had sewn myself. It wasn’t until 2016 that I released my first pattern, the Puppy Pillow. Now, my passion is to design quality sewing patterns, so you can create too!


Sallie Tomato provides sewing patterns, purse hardware, handbag zippers, cork fabric, and select sewing supplies for bag making.


The name of my shop developed around my middle name, Sallie.  Also, the tomato pin cushion is a well-recognized symbol of sewing.  Thank you for visiting my website!
