One of my bags has been on display at my LYS.
The suede bottom comes with holes and directions to knit a piece and sew it on or crochet and sew on. Instead, I picked up stitches from the holes and used Cascade 220 and Berroco Jasper, changing colors as I wished. I'm not sure, but I think I remember single crocheting around the picked up edge.I figured out how to make eyelets, crocheted a drawstring, added tassles.

Here is a decision I made recently:

What could I have been thinking of when I chose such an inappropriate gauged yarn for this small suede bottom? DK to Worsted is plenty heavy enough.
It was hideous.
