Wonderful! I want one! Are you in a sharing-pattern mood?
Well, I can give it a try! This is all from memory so it might be a little off, but hopefully anyone who tries this has a little experience. I have a "little" so it shouldn't be too hard. Feel free to email me if you have problems and I'll do my best to help.
Materials: 1.5 skeins of red heart super saver, size H hook, 1 yard fabric, 1 sheet plastic canvas, and a nice mother who will bring over her sewing machine and help you with the lining!
As I said, the bottom was very like the pattern for the Sweet Pea Tote Bag off Ravelry. If what I write doesn't make sense, read her pattern! lolhttp://www.freewebs.com/capscrochet/patterns.htm?blogentryid=4092803
Round 1: Sc across, in the last chain 5sc, then sc across the other side of the chain, 4 sc in beginning chain, and slip stitch to join.
Round 2 - 8 (or however big you want)
Ch 1, sc across, in last chain do (sc, ch2, sc) to make a corner. Sc across edge. In next corner (sc, ch2, sc). sc across back side of chain. In last chain do (sc, ch2, sc), sc across edge. (sc, ch2, sc) in first chain, slip stitch to join.
Round 9-10: dc in each stitch across, with 3 dc's in each corner.
begin wattle stitch, which came from a book called "basic crochet stitches" by Erika Knight, except I fudged it to work in the round.
Wattle stitch round 1, purse round 11: Skip 2 ch , *work [1sc, 1ch, 1dc] into next ch, skip 2ch; rep from *, sl st into ch1 space
Wattle stitch round 2, purse round 12 to ?
ch 2, *work [1sc, 1ch, 1dc] into next ch1 space, repeat from * ending w/ sl st into beginning ch 1 space.
**In the first couple rows of wattle stitch I pulled the stitches tight to pull the bottom up into the shape I wanted. After that I relaxed and did my usual tension.
Last round: Work 5 hdc into each stitch, fasten off & weave in ends.
Then decide which side you like better, I turned mine inside out at this point.
chain 75 (or to preference)
Row 1: sc in each st, turn
Row 2: Ch 4, skip 1st stitch that a dc would normally go in, (dc in next stitch, ch 1, skip next stitch) repeat to end, turn
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in each st
Cut a strip of fabric a little longer than the handles, and sew into a flat tube shape to hide the raw edges. Weave in and out of the dc's.
For lining, measure inside of bag and cut appropriately, so the material goes down one wide side, across the bottom, and back up the other wide side. Onto wrong side of fabric, sew a flat piece to make a pocket for the plastic canvas, which needs cut to the size of the bottom of your purse. For pockets, cut two rectangles and sew together right side out. Sew them onto the lining, and sew dividers into them by just making a straight line down them. (You may want to pin the lining in the purse first to get an idea of size and placement, but don't sew up the lining yet like we did!) Then sew the sides of the lining up.
Next pin the lining into the purse, with the handles placed between the lining and the purse. Put it on the sewing machine and say a little prayer that your machine will go through material and yarn, and sew it up. I made my liner go up to right before the ruffle, so I also hand sewed the handles to the ruffles after we were done.
Finally use the fabric scraps to make a little scarf and tie it on there.
