Wanting one small enough to carry, big enough to hold my stuff for every day usage. This purse measures about about 11 inches long and just over 6 inches tall. smaller than a sheet of printer paper but the bottom is wider so all my goodies fit inside. The top is smaller and can be left as/ is or lined with a zipper like I finish mine. The strap rings are knitted right on the ends of the purse making them strong and secure. I used 2 key rings through the purse strap knitted rings. A regular strap, rope, chain, or knitted strap work great. The right pic has a plastic bag inside the purse to hold it open.
