There is no exact number of sc st for each side but try to crochet as consistent as possible.

At the corners crochet 3 sc st so the corner is nice and tidy.

Once you finish crocheting the border with sc for all the 4 sides,insert the hook from the back of the first st , pull the loop of the last st, cut the yarn and hide the end.

Lining (Optional)

I recommend putting a lining so the things you have in bag do not slip through the waved sections.

Get a fabric of your choice and cut it as the measurement of the bag panel.Than pin it all around the 4 sides so it wont move around.

With a simple sewing need and some matching thread start sew all around the 4 sides.

And the lining is done.

Than cut the yarn and start sewing the strap to the main panel.

Sewing the strap

First place the end of the strap at the 5th checkered section of the main panel and sew with a tapestry needle and the beige yarn.

Than continue sewing the front panel ( 4 checkered sections) to one side of the strap.

Than sew the back panel ( 4 checkered sections) to the other side of the strap.
