Neverland Tote and Pouch

I made this tote and pouch set for @geekgirl in the Common Ground Swap. The fabric is all from the Neverland collection by Riley Blake - it was so cute I bought the whole collection in FQs plus some yardage. I’m never going to bust my fabric stash at this rate. :joy:

I used this tutorial for the tote bag, but I added in some pockets on the inside. A large zipper pocket that is fully lined, and two slip pockets (one large and one sized for a smart phone). My new sewing machine has some cute decorative stitches, and I used a star stitch to reinforce the pockets. I also used a heavy interfacing on the main fabric to give the tote some more stability and durability. I like a bag that stands up.






The three zipper-pouch was something my partner had pinned, so I used more fabric from the collection to make it a set. What a great tutorial! The construction was novel, but it made for a nice finish. I substituted the heavy interfacing for batting, though.

I have some of that fabric in my stash too, so your post is inspiring me to finish up my current sewing project so I can play with the neverland prints.
