This Shoulder Tote is not only beautiful but very handy. I use mine all the time! I keep 12 x 12 paper packs and page kits stored in this bag so I can grab it and go when I want to meet a friend to scrapbook. It measures 17″ x 14″ x 5 1/4″ so you can even carry an album. The clear part that you see in the front center is a pocket. There are two (one on top and one on bottom) in this middle section on the outside of the bag. You can use these pockets to hold supplies or photos. There are also pockets on the inside…two small ones to hold tools or a cellphone and another small zippered pocket. The bag is well made and good quality.
My personal use for this tote is to hold scrapbook supplies but it could serve many other purposes.
