Be gentle with me! I've been crocheting a few months, and decided to make my girlfriend a personalised satchel/bag for Christmas. I made the pattern and pretty much constructed the actual bag as I went along....
Not sure if I can post photos yet, so here's a link to be on the safe side.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v211/duffnstuff/metalhandbag.jpg
The straps and the back of the bag are a basic mesh stitch, and the inside is lined red. I'll try and get some more pictures soon!
