I am so totally in love with this bag!  I wrote a tute in my head and hopefully it translates well, if not ask me a question I'll muddle through it

I used size G hook and
1 skein red heart yarn

Beginning shell stitch is ch 3, 2 double crochets in same space
Shell stitch is 3 double crochets in each space

foundation row: Chain 51, single crochet in second stitch from hook until you get to original stitch, keep working around the back side of foundation stitches until you meet back up with first single crochet
slip stitch into top of first single crochet
(remaining rows are worked in rounds)
row 1:  Beginning shell stitch in first chain from hook, *skip two stitches and work shell stitch into next stitch* repeat from * you will have 17 shell stiches on either side of foundation row
row 2: slip stitch into top of chain 3 of beggining shell stich, then slip stitch into top stitch of 2 dc and slip stitch into space between shell stitches. beginning shell stitch into first space then work shell stitch into spaces between previous row shells
row 3-12: same as row 2 making sure to slip stitch into top of chain 3 and top of dc in previous rows first beginning shell
row 13 & 14: chain 1 then sc in each stitch around outside edge
row 15: (this one is confusing because the stitches aren't lined up perfectly bewteen the corners it's going to start off center but not to worry it'll barely be noticeable)
place stitch markers in middle 15 stiches on both sides of the bag (this is going to be the holes for the handles) single crochet until you get to the stitch markers then chain 15 stitches and connect to the bag at the stitch marker, keep single crocheting until you get to the stitch markers on the opposite side of the bag and chain 15 then attach to the bag at last stitch marker.  Keep single crocheting around for two more rounds and finish with a single crochet at one of the corners.  Fasten off and weave in ends.
Any questions?

This is a really cute clutch! Did you use variegated yarn? It looks great.
