I have become a sailor, but the colors are your choice …. have fun weaving!
If you dare ….. we start !!!!
We are going to knit mini-grannys with two rings, for this we position them in this way after having flattened the edges with a plier

1st round: we start weaving the central union making it 4bp — we continue doing 10 bp around the next space — another 4bp in the union — we end up with 11bp and 1pd sliding on the first dc

To make the final granny, we need to have these two mini grannys

We sew the two "mini" in this way, taking one side of the chain of each point

We are almost done with granny: D

Now, with a contrasting color, we go around the whole granny, doing in the corners (1pb + 2cad + 1pb) at the same point

This is the granny base, depending on the size you want for your bag you will have to knit more or less squares ..
In my case I used 28 grannys for each front of the bag, 5 for each side and 8 for the base.
I used 6 balls of wool: 2 red, 2 navy and 2 white 100gr. each.
This is the front, at the top of each of them I wove 5 white dots
This is the side: the grannys on the sides are positioned vertically
The zipper is woven with a round all around it and sewn to the 5-turn white bp strip on each front
The handles are, in my case, two strips woven to dc 10 points wide …, but both the length and width will depend on how you want to do it and your taste
Inside I lined it and put pockets and an acetate strip lined with the same fabric to reinforce the base
And that's how my maxi-sailor bag looks and looks
