We will work on both side of the foundation chain front and the back.
measurement of the bottom of the bag 3×14 inch.
Start with 40 chain.
Round1. Sc in next chain from hook and then sc in each chain across until in the last chain of the front side then make 3 sc in that last chain and place stitch marker in the middle stitch of the 3sc that we just make , and we continue to back side and make sc in each chain until at the end of the back side then make 3 sc in that chain then place stitch marker in the middle of the 3sc.
Continue to round2 donot join round.
Round2. Sc in next st from hook and then sc in each st across until in the stitch that we have stitch marker in from the previous round make 3 sc and place stitch marker in the middle stitch of the 3sc that we just make , and we continue to back side and make sc in each stitch until we meet the second stitch marker then make 3 sc in that stitch marker then place stitch marker in the middle of the 3sc.
Continue to round3 donot join round.
Round3 and beyond. repeat round2 until we got bottom of the bag 3×14 inch.
Now we will continue to make a body of the bag with solid shell stitch.

At the end of sc round, you will chain 1 then continue to solid shell round.
Round1. sc, * skip2 st then make 5dc in the next st, skip2 st make sc in next st* repeat this * to * and around at the end have 2 stitch remain skip those 2 st and slip stitch in sc in the previous round.
Round2. ch3 (this chain 3 count as 1dc) then make 4 more of dc in the same sc that we just slip stitch, then skip 2 st, *make sc in next st, sk2 st then make 5dc in next st* repeat this * to this * and around.
then we will finish round2 of solid shell stitch by join the round by make slip stitch in each of the first 3 stitch of the previous round until we are on the middle position of the first shell then ch1 and make sc in the same st of the chain 1 that we just make.
And we will repeat round 1 and 2 or the solid shell stitch until we reach 10-11 inch long.

I see English is not your native language. There are a number of spelling and grammatical errors. Perhaps it might be a good idea to have someone edit your articles before posting them. Just saying. Not really major; I was able to correct them all before printing.
