    I am considering these bags Palm Leaf Shoulder Bag : Unique Wedding Favors - Wedding Reception Favors - Bridal Shower Favors and was wondering if anyone knew if these bags sat flat on the floor or if they lean?
    Odd question I know, but it makes a difference. In the pic it says it can fit a water bottle, but not sure if the water bottle sits flat.

    Thanks,
    Jennifer

      They are so cute!

          I fell in love with this bag on sight and made up in my mind to buy them from the very beginning. I received 35 of them a week and a half ago and was very disappointed with the quality. I'm in the process of returning them. I think they aren't accurately represented on the website. They are much smaller than they appear on the website and not well made. I was suprised at how flimsy they are.

          To answer your question, they don't sit flat on the floor and would need to be propped up.

          I bought samples of the largest Lauhala bag from the Ailana.com site and they were faaaarrrrrrr superior in construction, they sit up on their own and they're only $3.50 a bag as opposed to the Palm Leaf Shoulder bag's $7.49. BTW, the handles are on the short side, so you can't comfortably hold them on your shoulder. Needless to say, I just bought 35 of the lauhala tote bag and am returning the Palm Leaf shoulder bags.

          My digital camera isn't working or I'd post pictures, but someone else posted pictures of the bag in this thread on pg 11 if you'd like to see them.

            Love the bags, but I don't know if they lean! The picture on the web looks like it doesn't have a solid base, so I bet the water bottles would tip. Good luck!

                  Thank you for your response, the Ailana bag is the other one I was looking at. Which size did you get-approx 9"W x 7"H x 3"D) $2.50 (plain) or
                  (approx 12"W x 10"H x 4"D) $3.75 (plain)? I am trying to decide between the 3rd largest or the 4th one.

                    I got the larger one for $3.75. It's technically the same size as the palm leaf shoulder bag, but better constructed. I like that it ships flat, but can stand on its own.
