this question is for the ladies but if you are confused I guess you can answer also.

I made this here mini purse looking thing. and I am not to sure about . I am thinking this will target the teenager crowd.

Is this something that you or someone would buy? I am not offering it for sale, but am thinking about making 10 of them

for a swap meet.

Comments? good or Bad are welcome and encouraged

I know for me I probably wouldn’t buy this one in particular. I love real leather purses though. I don’t know any lady who carries that small of stuff or little amount of stuff 😂
I personally would be hesitant of the roundness. Maybe with stuff in it it would be stable but I would be concerned of it rolling/tipping.
Love the closure idea!
Nice work though! Hope this feedback help and doesn’t offend!

I like the concept of it but maybe to use for something else and not as a purse. Also would try making the flap part longer to make items inside more secure. To me it looks like if you had something small it could slip out easily.

I personally wouldn't buy it b/c it's not big enough. I tote around a piece of luggage.😬 In addition, I'm not sure how you would just plop this down without it falling over without a flat bottom? I also prefer a shoulder strap in order to keep the hands free instead of having to grip on a handle in order to carry it around. I think that perhaps putting a flap on one side and laying it over the top with a side clasp would make for a more secure cover so that nothing falls out instead of having the flap run from end to end where there are gaps. It does look like extremely solid construction.👍 You clearly have talent!

It has a cute style, but for me, I need to know that when I put my phone, cards, cash and keys in, that they are not going to fall out. I like to carry a purse that the heavy duty strap goes over my head and the bag hangs to the side, so that my hands are free, but my purse is secure. I use a caribiner to secure my keys to my purse so that I am not digging and searching for keys, and they are secured.

If your wanting a rustic looking purse, maybe something different for the handle. It just doesn't look comfortable to hold. Think maybe a nice braided leather strap?
something like this?

I do not care for this style too much.
You are very talented tho, and it is quite unusual. Doesn't strike me as a purse, carry bag, etc. and I would not make more.
I like backpack looking handbags.
The other handbags you posted are really nice!

I actually carry a purse about that small.
Unlike the other ladies, I don't carry luggage for a purse.
But like the other ladies the handle looks uncomfortable especially if you have trouble with your hands.
Maybe that handle with shoulder strap.
I would feel better if the top was more secure.
I also hang my keys on my purse.
Just my thoughts.

Wow Frodo. Your work is amazing! I carry a smaller purse. I carry a wallet, phone, keys, pocket knife, lipstick and pen. That’s it. If gremlins put more in it, I get grumpy. I am not a pack mule. I like the later smaller one you showed. Oh, and I too like a shoulder strap.
