Hi - I'm new here - been lurking for awhile, finally registered  Wink

Anywho, I'd like to know if anyone thinks this bag style is practical? ie: would it get much use?  it's about 15" wide x6.5" tall - my husband just hates this style, but I see them everywhere so I *KNOW* they sell, lol... just want to get some opinions!

Thanks!!

I think the size is fine - but you might want to have it zip shut so that stuff doesn't fall out.  With something that wide and shallow, it seems like falling out might be a problem

I saw that, and I thought "Knitting needles!"

That bag is PERFECT for holding knitting needles!

With a zippered top, that would be almost exactly what my next purse should be.

the more i look at this bag, and read your posts the more i think "Duh, me!" lol... I have to agree with the zipper (or velcro) idea... I haven't quite mastered zippers yet (or even tried, for that matter ) so .... guess I better get busy :-)

this purse reminds me of something that would hold an umbrella (only too cute to just stuff an umbrella in, lol)

Zippers really aren't hard - but they can be ridiculously confusing.  make sure you a) have a zipper foot on your sewing machine and b) check over and over again that your zipper is in the right way before actually sewing.

Thanks for the tips! Funny, I was just talking with my friend (and partner in GracieTom) about how I really want to try a zipper, but for some dang reason I am just utterly terrified of attempting it LoL... I have issues  Roll Eyes

you could also sew it in a way that has a "flap" that goes over the top part and fastens with a magnetic closure--there is a kate spade bag ("champagne" i think it's called) that has that sort of design.  you would need to have some sort of weight/body to make it close properly.
