Pattern Details

Linen bags are sturdy, practical and a great way to transport heavy loads of shopping, books and other items home from the shops or the library. However they can tend to be, well, a little on the boring side. Not any more! The four bags in this collection take craft-store linen totes and transform them into stunning and stylish accessories. The two shopping totes in the collection are stylish and quite different in appearance: . The Back-to-Nature Bag has a subtle blend of colors in a stitch that looks almost crocheted. . The Sarasota Shopper features bands of texture with an understated elegance. The collection also includes two book bags which feature long handles so they can be easily carried on your shoulder and a key ring carabiner loop on an inside tab: . The Southampton Book Bag is textural and classic with a bright contrasting dyed liner. . The Falmer Book Bag has a strongly graphical design in black and red. PATTERN INFORMATION: The collection includes stitch charts and full line-by-line instructions for all four bags, and is available for immediate download. The pdf file included here is formatted for Letter-sized paper. However, it is also available in a UK version for A4 stationery.
