How to join the Granny Squares to make the bag. 
You can choose what to join the squares with Either a new length of yarn OR the long length you left after the last round. I find using the long length of yarn the easiest. 

I Lay all the squares out as I need them and I join as I work following the diagram for what sides to join to what side. 

Always Start at the Middle chain of the Chain3 CORNER. (you will find there may be several times you join into the SAME stitch to join as you go.

Continue sewing together by weaving through the furthers away loops of each square together.  I like to sew the end together FLAT as I find this helps to keep the work nice and tidy. If I try to do it any other way I find the seam can Bunch up and is really hard to get straight again. 

HOw to join granny quares together to make a bag

Fasten off and weave ends in tightly. 

Crochet Bag Handles 

LAY your bag flat so the 2 peaks are at the top. Starting on any long side, join yarn and single crochet to the first PEAK. Chain 80sts (Or however many you wish your straps to be) and JOIN to opposite PEAK. 
Ensuring your chain is not twisted, single crochet to the VALLEY and skip 3 stitches, single crochet slip to join. 

Rnd 2 and Round 3:  single crochet in each stitch and in every chain stitch, single crochet until the VALLEY and skip 3 stitches, working in single crochet up the opposite side. FASTEN OFF and weave in ends. 

now you are going to join the yarn into the UNWORKED sides and work in single crochet (Skipping 3 stitches at the VALLEY, and skip 1 stitch at the peak to join onto the OPPOSITE side of the chain stitches, and work around The handles. 

REMEMBER to Skip 3 Stitches on the VALLEY (one sitch from each side of the crochet squares and the middle bottom st)
