Hey everyone! Finally found time to post my finished round bag. Huge thanks to AmyKT5 and patterndrafter for helping me with darts. The result is exactly what I wanted- just the right size for knitting on the go.
Sorry about the dark pic.

It's a rectangle bottom, and I picked it up all the way around it with my circs, then knit up. Then for one row I k2tog + yo to make the holes, then decreased a few rows and bound off. Lined as Amy suggested, with a rectangle bottom, then a piece going up. I found the perfect reddishy fabric for this, too- matches the stripes exactly.
The darts are kind of haphazard, I was just eyeballing it and had virtually no idea what I was doing. My feeddogs hated the knit, so it was a huuge pain to finish off. I was also too lazy to go buy matching thread, so it's totally obvious where the zigzag got screwy. Hehe. It's not like anyone else is going to see it, though, so 's cool.

Much better colors ^.

Other pics (unlined) here, from Discussions & Questions: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50490.0

I like!
(Mind you I had to be convinced at first. The "action shot" on the Discussions & Questions gives a  much better idea of the size of this bag.)

What size did you think it was? Like really tiny?
Nope, it's perfect for carrying a project when I don't want to cart around my big bag. Which is what I knit it for Smiley

MMMmmm... summer.
