    Wow that's cool! How hard is it to work with? I'm not sure mine will look so consistent and clean...

    how well do your straps hold up? they seem thing - i'd be afraid they'd stretch and break.....

    These bags are pretty nice to work with. They are smooth and I find it easy to crochet with. Don't worry about your consistency, just keep your stitches snug and it will look fine.

    As for the straps, they're fairly strong. I probably wouldn't put really heavy stuff in there. The purse isn't too big so I don't think you could get enough in it to be a problem.

    Thanks for the questions. It really helps me to know what concerns people have and I want to consider these things when I design my patterns.
    Thank you!

    Oh I wish they had purple! Unfortunately at the nearest Fred Meyer store they use a brown colored bag. I did have someone send me some purple plastic bags from PA and I plan to make something special with those cool bags soon.

    hmm. they always had the purple ones for small stuff like cards, etc. the big bags were brown.
