A UFO Finish

I started this bag about a year ago as a store sample, before the owner of my LQS told the staff she was closing.

I don't remember the name of the pattern now. All I had left to do was sew the ties down to the sides, attach the pre-made handles, and make the inside bottom piece.

I don't have a use for it now which is one of the reasons why it has taken me so long to finish it.

It measures 13" wide by 10" tall by 5" deep. It has a magnetic closure, one exterior pocket and lots of interior pockets. It has three interior pockets on one side, two on the other and two smaller ones on each end for a total of nine interior pockets.

Anybody want to buy it? I've thought about setting up an Etsy shop in an attempt to find good homes for some of the things I've made but no longer want or can't use. As most folks do, I struggle with how much to charge for things. And setting up an online shop seems like a daunting task. I'm seriously thinking about it though.

If you have any advice or thoughts on my setting up an online shop, please leave me a comment. If you have an online shop of your own, what did you wish you knew before you started? What, if anything, would you have done differently at the start?

I've thought about opening a shop, too, to sell things I make so I can have a purpose for the many things I make that I just felt like making. LOL. My friend Brooke has an etsy shop if you need help with questions or anything.
