The Southampton Collection - Four Linen-lined Bags
Linen bags are sturdy, practical and a great way to transport heavy loads of groceries, books and other items home from the shops or the library. However, they can tend to be, well, a little bit on the boring side. Not any more!
The four bags in this collection each takes a craft-store linen tote liner and transforms it into a stunning and stylish accessory. What is even more delightful is that little sewing is involved in their construction since the liner is pre-formed.
. The Back-to-Nature Bag has a subtle blend of creams and greens in a stitch that looks almost crocheted.
. The Sarasota Shopper features bands of texture giving an understated elegance that would be right at home in the shopping mall or at the beach.
. The Falmer Book Bag has a strong graphical design and is perfect to carry a good quantity of books and DVD’s home from the library. It features long handles so the bag can be easily carried on your shoulder. Inside, an attached key ring carabiner provides the perfect place to hold a set of house keys or your library ID card
. The Southampton Book Bag is worked in a single dark color, and has a liner dyed in a strongly contrasting shade. Long color-matched handles are then added to complete the look.
Each pattern in the collection is available in a choice of two formats:
. US - for letter-sized paper
. or UK - formatted for A4 stationery
Please select the file format you prefer from the Ravelry store.
