This bag is *fully* customizable!

**ALL BAGS SHOWN ARE SOLD** You will be ordering a custom bag of your very own!

This Big Ol' Tote Bag™ features a lot of style and a whole lot of function! It's the perfect carry-all for hauling all those other bags back and forth each day -- you know, your purse, shoe bag, lunch bag, e-reader or tablet case, cell phone, cosmetic pouch, that stack of files you worked on last night at home, etc. etc. etc.

The bottom base is 6-8" across, giving you a very roomy bag. Extra sturdy, this padded bag is constructed with one large opening and a single padded cell phone pocket built in (large enough to hold an iPhone 7+ in a bumper case with a popsocket). There are no zippers, snaps, buttons or tabs to interfere while it does what it's designed to do: hold all those other bags so *you* only have to hold one! It can even be used as an overnight bag. :) (Get it in canvas and it makes a great beach bag or market bag as well!)

All seams are double reinforced (some triple!) and there are no raw seam edges inside or out. Bag layout can be configured in one, two, three (or more!) color/fabric layouts to suit your preferences (see diagram in photo lineup!).

Strap choices: fixed length pocketbook length strap (runs between 6-10" long), fixed mid-length strap (ranges 11-16") fixed length shoulder strap (around 16-22" long), adjustable shoulder strap (approximately 16-24" long at full extension). (If you do not specify, I will provide an adjustable shoulder strap to give you the best possible range of use. Adjustable straps will "shrink" to about half the full extension length -- thus a 20" extended strap will shorten to about 10".)

Let me know what primary fabric color(s) you like, and what kind of design(s) you have in mind and I'll do the rest! Remember to include the name or monogram you'd like stitched on the back of the bag if you want it personalized. I will pull elements from the design to offset the monogram or name for the back. Unless otherwise specified, the surname initial will be used for the larger, center initial in a monogram.

All bags are fully machine washable, lay flat, hang or machine dry. Iron on linen setting if desired. If there are special instructions for your particular bag, you will be advised, accordingly.

***THESE EXACT BAGS HAVE ALL BEEN SOLD*** -- You will be custom ordering a bag of your very own!

Here's some ideas to get you thinking -- Perhaps you have a favorite bible verse or a quote you love. Perhaps you really like owls. Or frogs. Or cats, dogs, birds or furry lambs. Maybe a fairy, pixie or an angel. Pick a posie or a pretty tree. A stack of books. Maybe an owl reading a book. Like lemurs? Want a stack of 'em? (Speaking of stacks -- pick an animal, I probably have it!) Like Dragons or dinosaurs? A shopping diva? A shopping diva accompanied by her poodle! What about a cross? An om. The star of David. Your zodiac sign, a yin yang (tao) symbol. There, I've got you started -- now brainstorm! (YES -- If you see a design on another item in my shop that you really love, I can put it on a Big Ol' Tote™ for you!)

Your custom bag will be completed within one week of purchase *and* following finalization of design details. You will receive a set of photos of your bag before it ships, as well as photos along the way to keep you updated on the progress. :)

Your purchase includes the bag only -- no devices or other contents are included! -- and will be sent to you via USPS priority mail stuffed into a very large envelope. (Due to the weight of the bag it must be shipped priority.)

The dragons in a heart shape symbolize so many emotions for me and the coloring is perfect. The black bag just brings out the colors in the dragons even more. The strings change color depending on how the light hits them. Being that I am the year of the dragon and the struggles I have with Love this bag will bring many happy memories as I look at it and inside it for the treasures it will hold!! Just beautiful!!

This bag is very large and has lots of storage space. The texture of the material the bag is made of is very durable and strong yet very delicate in color so it makes it perfect for any use. The alien with the heart is stitched out well and it looks amazing in person. With its soft look and durable material this bag will last a very long time. The drawstrings cinch it closed and you would think it was made from another world. Just amazing!!

The design is amazing. The feel of the bag is amazing and just perfect for what I needed it for. The interior liner keeps your treasures safe and the strings tie nicely and come apart easily for easy open and close when you want your items. Added incentive is if you do get it dirty it is washable so I will have this for many years to come!!

I was super excited to receive these personalized cup sleeves! Kathleen did an AMAZING job designing each one and picking out the perfect embellishments to complement the individual themes. I’m thrilled with the quality and cannot wait to present them to my friends! The price was great and shipping was fast! The only problem I have now is trying to figure out what to order next! I will definitely be a repeat customer!
