Here's the pattern: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/PATTfrenchmarket.html

I'm not sure why the original poster didn't post the link? 

I know because I made one about 6 years ago or so.  The designer gives the explanation for the name at the beginning of the pattern 

Sarafish the bottom is actually round, loosely based on French Market Baskets.  All the questions you ask are answered at knitty.com  My only regret was in not making it larger, common error of a first time felter!  It's nice for very small knitting projects.  If you're a sock knitter then it's the perfect size, especially for keeping on your wrist while you knit your sock.

 cute bag, anything more for instructions though? full dimensions , a pattern perhaps? something to help me make it other than sight?
how did you square out the bottom? where did you place the handles? how big is it before felting? how big is the opening for the top?

I love the "embroidery." This is by far my favorite bag of yours!
