    Alright so I recently came across this style of bag that seems pretty new. It's extremely cute so I wanted to share it around!

    https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1XmLLQVXXXXcDXVXXq6xXFXXXU/Moon-Wood-Brand-Summer-Candy-Color-PVC-Transparent-Bow-Backpack-Flower-Zipper-Women-Clear-Daily-Backpack.jpg_640x640.jpg

    It's available in pink, blue, and black on AliExpress for around $17-20, and also in more colors on Taobao (it costs more though, since you'll likely need a proxy) :D

    I saw those type of bags at AX going for $45-$50+ and it was tempting but I had a feeling they'd be available online for much cheaper! thanks so much for sharing ^__^

    Anyone have recommendations for smaller itabags, like handbag sized? I have one of the mainstream heart window itabags, but I'm not that keen on it and it's not big enough to fit my laptop (the only reason I'd carry a backpack .-.). A handbag-sized one would suit me better, and it would be easier to make character-themed itabags too since I'm super picky about merch I like ^^;

    Kind of wanted to add more options.

    There's a cute cat ears bag that's going for around $15-$18 on Aliexpress. Price at this particular store tends to fluctuate. If you are lucky you may get it for cheaper. So if you want you can hold out and wait till there's a discount.

    They also have the same bag as Susanoo14 posted up there around the same price range, but with more color options than the other listings on Aliexpress.

    Hello new here!

    I'd like to start my very 1st ita bag, however I'd like first to see different styles of bags since I dislike the one with the heart (not my style sadly).

    It'll mean a lot to me if anybody could help me and please make a picture list of different styles of bags and where to possibly get them.

    Thanks in advance ^_^

    Do you mean these? If so, they are sadly discontinued.

    A very useful tip I wanted to share: An ita bag insert! I have made one for a heart shaped bag, but I have no experience in making them for other bags. Simply said all you need is to cut a piece of cardboard, wrap your favorite looking cloth/material around + stuff it with plush material. This will protect your charms way more and you can easily slide everything in/out. This is also very useful to have a look at how your charms will be visible. :D I ''never want to go back'' after all the benefits!

    There is a Youtube tutorial about it, but I dunno if I may link it here?

    I did something similar for my heart bag. I use different colored foam boards so there's more stability since the fabric that's already in there is really flimsy. The cardboard sounds like a good idea since it's probably easier to put in and take out because it's sturdy. Thanks for the tip!

    I agree that the inner fabric is really flimsy, but I feel cardboard is just too rigid for my liking xD I made my insert out of plain felt (en.wikipedia.or...). It's thick but easy to work with, and it looks great from the outside! I may give it a try to the cardboard though, since it would definitely make it easier to slide everything.

    You could wrap the felt around a piece of cardboard and before you close everything, you can fill it with plush material. :) I made it this way, I bought a nice looking fabric instead. It's so soft and sturdy at the same time! Feels like my items are really protected.

    I agree about the inside. And when you pin everything in there it will leave some holes after removing. :/ You could wrap your favorite material around a piece of cardboard and before closing fill it with plush material. :3 Maybe I should upload a picture of my insert if this can help (some other people)? xD

    There's a few Mise totes on HLJ, but they are either out of stock or on backorder. Looks like they'll have to check on if they can secure it from the manufacturer or something~ hlj.com/search/...

    There's also more options from wego, but these would require a proxy~ gocart.jp/ap/it... / gocart.jp/ap/it... / gocart.jp/ap/it...

    I saw a non-fluffy bunny backpack on eBay the other week >< www.ebay.com/it...

    Maybe auction sites like Mercari or Otamart gets listings occasionally, since it's out of print?

    I can work on a list of bags/sites that I've come across ^^ Do you have a prefererence of backpacks or shoulder/handbags? And are you ok with websites that would need a proxy?

    I've seen these before aitaikuji.com/i..., but I don't know if it's too small. They can probably be found somewhere cheaper too.
