    Reversible Totes for Charity

    Some of the reversible totes I have made over the past couple of weeks for a children's charity organisation. It has been a great way to use some of my fabric stash. Lots more to make as well as photo album fabric covers, chalkboard playmats and lap quilts.

    Beautiful totes. That is such a wonderful idea. That would be wonderful for them foster children I help and the abused moms. I will have to see how I can get a pattern and try it. Thanks for sharing

    A great idea (especially for abused families or foster children, owlvamp), Lynn. So are they used by the charity or sold as fund raisers. Looks like there's something for everyone!

    They will go in a shoebox with other items and will be distributed to children just before Christmas. The children like to empty out the shoebox and put all their little goodies into a bag that they can carry around, hence the bags in bright colours for boys and girls.
