Perfect for a beach bag or weekend tote.
Play close attention to the measurements - this bag is humongous!! I read the other reviews and expected big - but it's size still surprised me! I plan on using it for a beach bag to pack a couple of towels and lots of other stuff. Also will be great for a weekend trip. Be sure to note there is no closure on this bag - the top is open. The thickness of the fabric keeps the sides from collapsing - also has a cardboard base insert. Love the Camellia print!

This bag is true to its name! It is the BIGGEST bag I have ever owned! It has a solid base (non-removable), more than spacious interior, and a small zip pocket on the inside. If you really want to get an understanding as to how large this bag is, it fits eight (yes, EIGHT!!!) beach towels!! I've also used it to transport my entire comforter set and bed sheets to college. It's way too big to use as a shoulder bag but perfect for car travel, the beach, or a day by the pool. It's also great for ski trips and will fit all your winter clothing, snow pants, ski jacket, helmet, and all! There is no zipper so it is only useful for larger items like towels, blankets, sweaters, etc... that won't fall out and get lost. The cotton material makes it lighter than most totes its size, even when completely full. The shoulder straps are much longer than how they appear in the photo, but that's just because this bag is so large that it makes the straps look short. I bought this bag in Jazzy Blooms. Overall, a gorgeous print but the colours are much brighter and more fluorescent (like highlighter colours) than in the photo and the grey background is a little more faded. Absolutely LOVE the bag though. Considering purchasing a second one in a more wintery, less summery pattern.

This Is The Perfect Sleepover Bag
I really love this bag! It is the perfect size to bring to any slumber party! I have this in Ribbons and i think that it is the most easy to use bag that you could buy! I really suggest that you buy it!! If you are debating on whether or not to purchase this, then you should buy this right away!!

Will hold everything
I used to call myself the bag lady because I carry so much to work each day; purse, lunch bag, work folders and tablet. This bag holds everything including my purse. I also use in on trips to hold all those small items that end up all over the car.

These bags are huge!
I bought four of these bags a while ago in Suzani, Midnight Blues, Plum Crazy, and Happy Snails. I needed some extra bags for my ballet classes, so I can fit all of my stuff in there. When I got the bags, they were SO much bigger than I expected! I'm really small, so it would be hard for me to carry such big bags, so I just put it to other use. I now use these bags for travelling, sleepovers, or to use as a beach bag when I lifeguard! I wouldn't suggest carrying these around as a simple easy bag though because they're gigantic!

I bought 2 of these, one for my daughter and one for me and they are great! They are very big, but my daughter loves it because she can take it and pack all of her clothes in it for when she goes for a sleepover at her friends house. She also does dancing so when she goes to competitions she can fit in her costumes and some makeup and other things she needs! They're great for a day at the beach also. Can fit sunscreen, 2-3 large towels, shoes, books and other things you might want to take to the beach :)

Favorite carrier of my little dog Toto!
I rarely need my Grand Tote, but now I'm caring for a little foster dog from a local shelter. So today, when it was too warm to leave Toto in the car, I decided to carry her in the GRAND TOTE. She loved it!! She hasn't liked other purses with satiny interiors but the cotton quilting was perfect. The base also held up well so she felt safe. I put the straps on my shoulder and she made quite a stir at the mall. And if you're going through a store with a shopping cart, the tote fills the little carrier shelf and can easily fold over the top of the cart. One happy owner, one happy dog!

The Tote for Everything!
I just ordered this bag and I've used it more than I can count! This is a HUGE bag and can fit anything in it. This is great for a day at the beach/pool. I can put 3 towels in there along with lotion, 2 cell phones, my wallet, my husbands wallet, a change of clothes for myself, my daughter, and husband. The key clip is great so you're not climbing in the bag to look for your keys. I don't mind that it doesn't have a zipper because it's the type of bag you just fill to the max and can't zipper it anyway. If you are looking for something around the size of this bag, but want a zipper I suggest the Miller bag. I have that one as well and can basically fit the same amount of stuff in either one.

Great size but needs a zipper
This bag is a perfect size for either pool or beach. It fits a couple of large towels, lotion, book, paddle ball set, etc. All things that you and your kids may need. You can fit everything you need for a day. However, it needs a top zipper to keep stuff from spilling out. So keep that in mind. It is basically same size as Carry it All which has a zipper -- but personally, I think that it is a much nicer and simpler design. I am actually considering sewing a zipper in.....
