Finally! I have found the perfect tote bag for a reasonable price :-) from sunshinecrafts.com. Once there, just scroll down the page.
If buying 6 or more, the price is $2.77/piece; the handles are just perfect - 4", the dimensions of the tote could not be better (18"x16") if you prefer to wear it on your hand and not on your shoulder, which I do.
The possibilities for that bag are endless - perfect canvas for one's creativity.
