The bag is started from the bottom with a provisional cast on and worked flat. Stitches are then picked up for the sides and the bag is worked in the round. The garter rib pattern transitions to a vertical eyelet stitch, then back to the garter rib for a top border. The top of the bag is bound off in an i-cord edging. The i-cord edged strap is worked flat from one side and stitched to the live strap stitches on the other side.
