The OTB "One true Bag" Tote Bag will fulfill all your ita bagging needs with its sturdy double windows! One side is full window and the other is heart shaped! This bag is made from durable canvas to survive many conventions of pin abuse and has two comfortable tote style carrying handles.
Consider the starter kit! It comes with matching safety pins and two precision cut backings for your decorating pleasure. It's the easiest way to get going with your new ita bag! To see this bag in action, check out Inspiration Station: Counting to Ten!
The large full rectangle window has four loops, good for accessory chains, attaching inserts, or just hanging charms directly. The other side is a heart!
There is a large, sturdy zipper on the main compartment. Inside the main compartment there is a minor zippered pocket inside along with two open pockets. There is even a reinforced bottom that folds flat for easy storage. You could easily fit a laptop and more in here - it’s spacious!
The main window is 14" x 9". The heart window is 6.75" x 8.75", but it has the same frame as the main window.
I purchased this bag after I noticed my original ita bag was beginning to fall apart (it had survived many cons). I was hesitant at first since I am picky about purchasing things like this online. I like to feel the material and inspect the bag before buying. However, since my current bag was slowly dying and anything else I found at conventions felt too cheap for the price, I decided to give it a shot. O.MY.GOODNESS! Everything about this bag was perfect! The straps, the materials used, the size: EVERYTHING! I especially like that there is a flap on the bottom of the bag that helps to hold it's shape. The canvas used on the outside is incredibly sturdy. The lining material also seems more durable than my old bag. Even the grommets on the side of the bag give you the opportunity to decorate your bag even more! I also purchased the inserts and cannot wait to start filling them up with pins and key chains!
The shipping for this bag wasn't as fast, but it was worth the wait. It's durable and the color I got was the red. I absolutely lovely. It's also very spacious. The straps are wide enough to be comfortable and i can carry around my merch with ease. I really love it.
I purchased this bag at Sacanime Summer about a year ago now, and overall the bag has held up pretty well. There are a few loose threads here and there and the ribbon accents have untied themselves. However, I'm so happy with my purchase and I recommend this or the messenger bag as a nice starter bag or even a convention bag. Both sides have a window, and the backing boards that Co-Kan Sell make for even easier design choices, so If you get multiple boards you can easily swap out what fandom merch you want to show off. I've found that this bag also spot cleans really well!
I have a ton of Victuuri merch and needed a big bag to fit all of it. This tote was perfect! I love the added ribbon detail on the sides. The canvas is nice and sturdy which is awesome when you have a ton of merchandise. I will forever recommend these bags to fellow ita baggers.
