    Expression about 'holding a bag'


    Are these expressions proper to describe this picture?
    'She is holding a back on her right shoulder.'
    'She is holding a back with her right shoulder.'

    She is carrying a bag on her left shoulder.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The phrase "holding the bag" also has an idiomatic meaning, to be responsible for something.
