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 colours
. 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 with a bright contrasting dyed liner
. The Falmer Book Bag has a strongly graphical design in black and red

NB: The patterns for each of the bags are also available as stand-alone patterns. See my website for details.

Difficulty: Intermediate
