Tote Bags for Foster Children

The Millington Quilt Club has decided to make tote bags for foster children. The kids
 often carry their belonging from home to home in paper bags or cardboard boxes. 
Following Jenny's advice, instead of buying more fabric, I went through my stash and found some fabric and trims to make this tote.

The tote is large, about 13 inches high and 22 inches wide.  One side has a zipper pocket and the other a plain pocket.

The top has zippered flaps.

There are pockets all around the inside.  One large side pocket has a zipper.

Thanks to Julie and Carole, for putting together a pattern that was easy to work with.
