The question right before this one had 'bolsas' as 'pockets' and yet in this one translating 'bolsa' as 'pocket' is incorrect?

I think this should be "A bolsa dela ESTÁ vazia "

Good point. I suppose "é" could work with one of the figurative uses of "vazio/a" (http://www.aulete.com.br/Vazio) but none of them seem particularly applicable to a bag or purse.

More or less the difference between empty and vacant in English. There are some online dictionaries to help with questions like this: http://www.duolingo.com/comment/594701.
