FO Garter Stitch Striped Bag
Love this bag!! The only thing is I put the straps on in the wrong place.Should of been on the points(Duh).I am gonna cut them off and put them in the right place. I knit one square and the picked up sts to add another square,less seaming that way I also did a applied I-cord all around the top and for the straps.I added a Celtic Knot button on the snap.

I think it looks perfect as is! Love it very much - I must look up the pattern.
ETA: What is the name of the pattern/where is it?

This is really cute, I love the colors you chose, I might have to make me one of those! And about the straps, I guess it will look better where they go, but I think they look great where they are!! If I were you, I would just leave them as is unless it makes it difficult to put on your shoulder or something. Just a thought!

It's beautiful! I love the blue and white, what pretty colours. I'm loving seeing this bag in all different colours around here! I think the handles look fine where they are, too

There's no official pattern. It was designed by Ishi on Ravelry. It's just 22 garter stitch striped squares (for example, I did mine 17 sts x 34 rows (incl cast on and bind off) which = 17 stripes). The trick is in how the squares are seamed together to form the bag. You can see the photo of how/where to put the squares together on Ishi's Project Page at Ravelry.
