Pin navy pocket pieces right sides together and sew along both 7 1/2" edges, leaving remaining short ends open for turning. Repeat for remaining two red pockets. Turn all pockets right side out and press.
For front, pin one wavy flag piece right side up on top of fleece, with raw edges even. Baste to fleece along edges. Pin pockets in place with raw edges even, spacing as indicated in Figure 1. Baste in place along side edges. Stitch pockets to front piece by sewing close to each lower pocket edge.
Cut a 9” piece of twill tape or grosgrain ribbon and fold in half crosswise. Pin to center top of locker pocket front with raw edges even and loop towards the locker pocket; baste in place.
Pin locker pocket back to locker pocket front, right sides together and with raw edges even. Sew around all edges leaving an opening for turning along the bottom edge. Clip corners and turn right side out through the opening. Stitch opening closed. Stitch divisions in the pockets as desired. We stitched three 1” divisions in the center pocket to hold pens or pencils, and a center division in the remaining two pockets.
