I found the tut for this!

http://www.scribd.com/doc/3313248/Ingas-Granny-Square-Crocheted-Bag

But, anyone could tell me this, how do you sew in lining? Shocked
Usually you make the lining out of fabric. The easiest way to get it the right shape is to lay your bag out on some paper and trace it. that's your pattern. Smiley
then cut 2 out of fabric+ any pockets. Sew pockets to one side of lining. then sew the lining right sides together. Fold down the top raw edges and You can hand sew it to the bag or put it through the sewing machine if your yarn isn't something delicate or that sheds.
Usually you will want to pic your lining to your bag before sewing it in totally and if you sew it on the machine use a very long stitch t put it in first that way if it comes out crooked it's really easy to get out. (trust me do not skip this step or you will feel really stupid if your lining goes in sideways and you have to take it out.) then if it's in correctly use a zig-zag stitch to hold it in for security.

Thank you all for your sweet comments!!  Smiley  Grin

athenamat, great you found that link! ~ i followed instructions on a crochet blog, it was somewhere on here:  http://sockhaus.antville.org/stories/1146823
But i can't seem to find it anymore, so all i got was a print-out.

My bag is made of 13 squares instead of 16 (or even 18) and i crocheted it together in a different way: only 1 square makes the bottom of the bag and 3 'rows' of 4 squares each make the sides. ~ so my bag is a little slimmer and less bulky, still a whole lot of stuff can fit in there.

Eliea, thanks for explaining! ~ this is pretty much how i went along, except i sewed the finished lining in by hand so the stitches aren't visible on the outside.

No problem. I've done it by hand too but my hand sewing is so ugly it's much neater on machine for me! lol.
I totally didn't mean to be rude and not comment on your project. It's awesome btw!

Anyways, great bag! The straps had me confused for a while, until I realized that the fabric you use for the lining is little jars! Am I right? lol
I thought you had somehow woven the yarn in and out of... something. Somehow. lol

Absolutely lovely!  Quite beautiful!

I can picture having a "wardrobe" of these:  your happy colors one, an autumnal  earthtones one, an icy white and blue wintery one, etc.
