Lovely, good handle...nothing worse than skinny handles!

Looks good. Getting the handles sewn on securely is the main thing. When I made hand woven bags I incorporated the handle into the side of the bag as a gusset; that way it was held for the whole depth of the bag. Otherwise, sew down each side of the handle and across top and bottom, then diagonally both ways. If you mean the width, it is good for a shoulder bag, or one to sling on your arm, but perhaps a bit wide to hold in the hand. Ideal for a craft bag though.

I agree it looks like a brilliant bag for knitting or crochet projects.

That's lovely. I made one with that kind of shape for my Mum's knitting. Until then she had been using an ancient plastic bag. I suspect she now puts that into the bag I made her.

After posting a pic on fb and have been asked if I can make more. How much is it worth, how much should I be charging for them?

It looks a useful size, ...It is difficult to price..cost of materials have to be covered of course.There is a WI rule that goes something like..cost of materials..then add a third..then add a third of that again;;;and then anything you feel it is worth your while doing it after that. If you have loads of time then it is a brilliant way of pocket money but if your time is worth more..then they have to be priced as such.
I think pricing is the hardest part of craft work, especially as hand crafts are often so under valued but then not many folk can pay what it is actually Worth.
