It's huge. I had no idea how big it really was until it got here, and I pulled it out of the box and was floored. The strap is just long enough to cross over my body (your body may vary of course) so it's very comfortable to use as a purse-tote for everyday use. I don't scrap, I do generic paper art stuff, so I haven't used this for crop parties, but I CAN vouch for its awesomeness as a knitting bag, especially since one of the three segments is a great size for holding thinner books or magazines and one of the other segments is full of pockets for all my everyday items and knitting notions. The last section being a solid open part so far is holding a large shawl just fine, and I bet I could even carry a sweater in progress in this thing. Top it all off, it's GORGEOUS! mad love for my tote =)
As with most of my major purchases, I regularly wait and give it a year or 2 before giving in. In the case, the this particular bag, I did just that. Last fall, I purchased the Dancing Mums for my good scrapbooking friend & neighbor for her birthday. After seeing her use it and tell me how much she really did love it, I decided that I should not only get 1 today, but instead, purchase 2!...I'll be moving overseas next month, so with that in mind, I decided that the Dancing Mums one would be perfect to take with me on my travels, as well as a great & comfortable look & feel and coordinate with the very island that I am moving to! I also have this one and I will be using it specifically for scrapbooking & crops on the go! Instant fave!...Comfy, colorful & an instant Fave in my book! ;)
What can I say about this bag? I saw it online one night and I was drooling over it. Then I couldn't remember the brand name and I was Googling like crazy. When I finally re-found it, I couldn't find anywhere that had it in stock. The next day I walked into the great little scrap store across the street from my office (how convenient and dangerous is that? But I digress...) and she had the freaking bag in stock! I bought it instantly.
It's great quality, beautiful, functional, and totally cool to take to classes/clubs/crop nights. Plus it's handy to use for other crafts and not just scrapping.
I highly reccommend it!
I just purchased this tote after wanting it for quite some time. I've even taken it to a crop night already and found that it worked out perfect! The large main compartment held my 3-ring binder scrapbook perfectly! I also found it perfect for carrying my 12'x12' paper for the layouts i was working on. The other smaller pockets also worked out great! Finally, i really like how comfortable the strap is on it, it doesn't seem to slip off my shoulder which makes carrying all of my scrapbooking items an easy task. I really love this product!
I had saw this bag at the Scrapbooker Dream Vaction Sdv in Orlando and I had to have it. This bag is perfect to carry all of this you might need at a crop. I like to bring my album I am working on and also magazine (for inspiration). It holds all the new product have purchased (scrapbook.com - love it) to bring to the crops. All my girlfriends fell in love with it once they saw mine. I would recommend this bag if you are looking for something not so bulky. Perfect gift for any scrapbooker.
