    I am going to try to post a picture of a tote I just finished. The pattern is from the McCalls Quilting mag for June/July.....I pretty much followed the pattern except for the closure tab. And I did put a bottom insert in to fortify the bottom portion......that was not really necessary, but I have several and in different colors so I added a light colored on....it is removeable, but allows me to see what's in the bottom better.....old eyes, you know...LOL!
