This bag won't stand up like this when filled, but I thought it provided a good picture of the width.
They are interfaced and have a zipper in the top with a handle to be able to grab it off the shelf.
The larger size is 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 x 15, the black/sepia tone bag.
This is a picture of the smaller bag posed on top of the gift box it is based on. It measures 7 1/4 x 4 x 11.
They are lined with cotton fabric. This photo actually shows one of my sweaters in it. The sweater isn't handknit if you are wondering....thats on my to do list.
Let me know what you thing of the idea!
