I had an idea...

...for a crazy knitted bag the other day and tonight, I started sketching it out and I think it'll work. The problem I'm having, though, is that I have no idea how big I want it to be. Because of the design, it'll probably have to be on the smallish side, but at the same time, I don't want it so small the necessities and stuff won't fit. And, that's where I'm stuck. I've never been really good with purses and bags. I chose my current one because it was big enough to fit a sketchbook and pencil case in. Usually, I don't even carry it unless I'm going somewhere I can sit and sketch because I really don't have much to put in it (no car keys, no cellphone, etc.) My necessities will fit in my pockets, but I know that's not true for everyone. :)

So, does anyone have any size suggestions? I need all the help I can get! Thanks! :D

If the Idea for the bag has a picture on it instead of centering the picture you could off set it, say in a corner or center top or bottom and then the size of the bag could be as big or small as you wanted. To be honest, I like a variety of bag sized, myself. I have use for smallish and large bags so that probably won't be a big thing in the end. Good luck with it and I can't wait to take a peek.

I am unsure of what size is the best for carrying the essentials. I like the size of the "Booga Bag." Anything bigger than that and you will have to line the bag with fabric. So, I guess it depends. I made a larger Booga bag and it's too floppy for my taste. The normal sized booga was great lining required.

I wish you luck, toots.
