A New Bag!

I just wanted to do a quick little post about the new bag I made today. I've been wanting to add a little shopping tote to my shop for a while, and here it is. I'm calling it Charlotte after a friend of mine. I haven't put it in any of my shops yet, I ran out of time today. Just wanted to get your opinions and ideas on how much I should charge for it. There are shopping totes on Etsy anywhere from $8 to $50. This one is made from good quality quilter's cotton, is lined and has a pocket inside. Measures about 15" wide x 14.5" tall with 18.5" handles. It's washable too! Please, tell me what you think.

p.s. Mrs. Kwitty, i thought of you when I bought this fabric!

I think its delightful. It was a good idea to put a pocket on it. A lot of etsy totes don't have that. Sorry, I've no suggestion on pricing. Maybe in the $15 to $25 range?

LOL!! That fabric is totally me! I would have bought it in a flash if I had seen it! The bag is so pretty! Pricing can be so tricky, especially with sew items. I guess I would say around $25 seems reasonable for a large bag, quality fabrics, fully lined, AND a pocket! BTW--it is beautiful and the quality of your sewing really shows!

That's a great looking tote. I would charge anywhere from mid twenties to low thirties, depending on the cost of the fabric.

Thanks for the comments girls. I'm thinking I'll go with $24. This fabric is expensive. I can't see how anyone could charge $8 for something like could that be worth it? haha
Listing today.
