DIY White Bags
Perfect for Girl Scout activities
I wanted blank canvas bags for my daisy girl scout troop to decorate and make their own at the end of their first year to be able to use at their activities. It's not meant to hold their schoolbooks or heavy items, the handles are made of nylon and I would like it to be sturdier but the price is excellent for something the girls can play around with. As they get older then I can teach them how to reinforce the bags by sewing into it. So to me it's perfect.

A good bag for children
These bags were affordable and of high enough quality for a children's craft activity. We used them for Daisy Girl Scouts to glue felt and ribbon decorations to each decorate their own bag, and they worked great for this purpose. They're not made to carry lots of heavy items, but for children to decorate and carry light items, they're great.

Good Bags for A FEW Books
I purchaseed these bags for my first graders to tote books to and from home. We decorated them with paint and stamps - they looked great! I was a bit disappointed in the quality - I was hoping for thicker bags and more durable straps. Our first graders were carrying one or two books at a time - they were just fine for this purpose. They were thrilled!

Cheap, Cheap, Cheap!
I ordered several canvas items in my last order and these were by far the worst. The quality is really bad and the handles super cheap. if you are purchasing these for business purposes think again. Definetly not resale quality!

Do not buy the smaller bags, if you are unsure. These are a perfect size for kids, anything smaller would be too small. They are a little thin, so put something in between when you are decorating, or else the ink/paint will transfer. These were definitely fun. A good buy.

Beware the handles
Love the price but the handles are cheap. I fear not too many books can be carried in this bag or it will rip. But the canvas itself is good. For a party activity these bags will do just fine.

I was a little disappointed. I chose the more expensive item because I saw the review of the 14.99 bags so I thought these would be a little better. They were very thin and the stitching was coming out on many of the handles. We had to put plastic bags inside so the paint wouldn't seep through. I would have paid more for something thicker. Luckily the girls at the party were thrilled.

A Little Disappointed
I normally purchase the "natural" canvas bags. They were on back order and these were recommended as a replacement. I was disappointed that the quality was not quite up to par in comparison to the natural bags and these cost more. The canvas was thinner and when the kids used fabric paint on the bags, in some instance it went through to the other side. I did like the white vs. canvas because it looked crisper in color.

Great Mother's Day project
All of the first graders decorated them with their hand print creating a flower in a sponge painted flower pot with a marker stem & leaves. Slip a piece of cardboard into the bag before starting. They had a choice of purple or pink acrylic paint for their hand print. The clay pot was outlined with marker for them. On a plastic lid a mixture of brown, yellow, and orange acrylic paint created gorgeous pots as they blotted in the pre-drawn clay pot with small sponges clipped in clothes pins. A bright colored button was hot-glued to the flower pot after they were dry. Best done in groups of 4-5 at a time. They signed the bag and the year at the bottom of the bag. They were adorable, inexpensive, and loved by all of the moms!
