How did you do the corners? Do you do them as half circles?
I haven't had a chance to work on this....

I did end up doing them as a "pac man" shape.

I simply made a large pouch for the body of the bag and tucked in and secured the bottom corners.  I closed up the 'mouthes' of the 'pacmen' then I slip stitched the "pac men" to each corner.

I just pleated the top of the bag so the total number of stitches across the top = 40.

I've finished the bottom of my bag!!!

Working on the top...go it partly finished....going to line the top with pleather before attaching it to the bag...



The pleating looks wonky in the photo cause of the way the bag is sitting....looks straight in real life.

OMG!!!
did u keep track of how ur doing this?!?! It looks AWESOME!

I really tried to write down what I was going but.....I ripped it out so many times I just don't know where to start...If anything, it will be more 'instructions' rather than a pattern.

For the handles and trim I used 2 layers of vinyl sewn together and hand stitched to the bag.

I used single crochet for the body of the bag and cluster stitch I believe for the "toppers".

I made a large rectangle in single crochet for the body then folded it in 1/2 and pinned in the pleats.

I tucked in the bottom corners of the bag and stitched them in place (to give the 'pouch' a rounded bottom).

Next I crocheted the bottom corners using cluster stitch in a "pac man" shape.  I stitched the "mouths" closed to make a slight cone shape and stitched them to the bag with a slip stitch.

To make the "toppers" I measured around the top of the bag and chained to that length.  Using cluster stitch I made two rows that length, slipped stitched, across a few inches, then cluster stitched again to make the centre part raised, then slip stitched again to the beginning (repeat twice).  I made 2 of these and hand stitched them to plastic canvas for stability.

I lined the reverse of the plastic canvas with cream vinyl and sewed my zipper between.  I cut and attached the vinyl trim and straps.
