A couple of comments.  The strap appears insubstantial for the size of the bag and to support a heavy load.  The flower is pretty but rather lonely.  It might be more striking without the flower for a cleaner - crisper - smart look.  Or add a leaf a bud or a couple of smaller flowers - not in a straight line but maybe at 8 o'clock and 4 or 5 oclock positions.    Where does the rollup mat fit in/on and what does the inside look like?  Just thoughts to help it sell - or to consider re it not selling.  The overall shape,  lines and color are fab, IMHO.  Good luck!

Those are good points, thanks!  It will have to stay as is because all the fabric is gone Sad  .  The straps are actually quite strong because they are grosgrain ribbon, but only I know that they are strong, I loaded a few things in and tested it when I made it.  Its too late to change that, I don't want to undo alot of the work just to get at the inside. 

If it doesn't sell this time I am keeping it because I really like it, or will save it for a baby shower present (nah I will probably keep it lol).

Thanks so much!

I like it, but i'm not really into the flower (sorry). I think it would look crisp and modern w.o it, but that's just me. i love the colors tho Smiley

i do really like it as well, but i recently bought a big purse with thin straps

the straps are strong enough to hold heavy loads (ie, my laptop), but if i walk for any distance with it the straps dig in and hurt quite a bit. i don't have forsight for these things - and don't care, because beauty is pain, right? Cheesy but other people might.

I used to have a diaper bag, when I needed one, with thin straps as well, its long gone because my baby is now 2 and has her own back pack!  But I never walked long distances with it on my shoulder, it was usually in the strollers bottom basket or in the car when I had to go somewhere. 

Good thoughts though, thanks!
