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 Back-to-Nature Bag takes a standard craft-store linen tote and transforms it into a stunning and stylish accessory.

The exterior is worked in a crisp cotton yarn and features a neat stitch that almost looks crocheted. Inside, this sturdy little bag has a canvas liner but with the advantage that only minimal sewing is necessary to complete the item.

NB: This pattern is also included in the Southampton Collection - a set of four linen-lined bags.
