TGIFF - Tote Bag and Pouch

This is a tote bag and zippered pouch I made for a friend for Christmas.  My fabric pull was based on the chocolate canvas I used on the bottom of the bag.  My friend loved the colours, and so do I.  I'm hoping I have enough fabric to make at least another zippered pouch.

I love the plastic so that you can see what's in the pouch.  It was hard to gift these -- you all know how much I love orange.  😉  Although this is more coral than orange, I still love it.

The tote bag is on the small size -- need to read the pattern more closely next time.

I'm hoping to make more gifts for Christmas and other special occasions.  It's a way to work my way through my stash and to reduce waste in the world.

  1. What a great gift set, Anja!! LOVE that peek-a-boo pouch! What pattern did you use?

  2. Great bags! Useful and very lovely. Is the pattern such that you can figure out how to easily enlarge the tote?

  3. I can see why you wanted to keep them, they are lovely. I especially like the pouch.

  4. Amazing gifts! I really like the pouch with the plastic - how clever is that! That is one lucky friend. :-)

  5. They are truly lovely, and a perfect way to use up scraps!

  6. Great gifts. It’s nice to sew your stash, saves money and storage space. Love the colours.

  7. Smart looking gifts. Since the tote is on the small side, it would make a nice lunch bag.

  8. Love the pouch. Like the commenter above I'd like to know the pattern you used. I could use a few of these.

  9. Those are really great! LOVE the bold colors - my kinda style!!
