This fat bottom crochet bag pattern is for a lined bag and features circular bamboo handles. The body of the bag is a simple square and the bag is embellished with flowers, buttons, lace, and ribbons. This bag can also be made with a square piece of fabric of your choice. It is very simple!
In this version of the bag, it was embellished with 4 different laces on top o each other.
