I found some packages of pre-cut fabric strips on clearance at Hobby Lobby, said it was for knitters, but ha, I crocheted with them and I came up with tis:

Just a really simple single crochet (I used a K hook), made one long panel,whip stitched it up the sides. I did not like how all the little strings were all over the place, so I washed it and dried it then put the handle on.

any possibility you could repost the picture?

I do a lot of fabric knitted purses and I'm trying to do a crocheted one so I can teach a class.

Also, have you crocheted it in a circle. (I don't know if that's the right wording). I'm trying to find a way to not stitch it up the sides.

I'm more of a knitter, so any suggestions would be great.

Very very nice!

I saw some really nice fabric strips at the other day and was tempted! So it's great to know that it would look so amazing in a crochet bag!

Yes you could crochet this in the round (thats the term to use) or you could work back along the other side of your chains to make an oval shape.
But i think it would be easier to make a rectangle then sew up on a sewing machine, since you use fabric it goes through well, just adjust the tension on the thread.
