Rustic Linen Four Corner Bag (Medium)
LISTING IS FOR BAG ONLY (does not include the handles, which can be found here).
Through many years of teaching knitting, Cocoknits owner, Julie Weisenberger, used and saw hundreds of project bags, usually the drawstring variety. She was frustrated with this classic bag design because it is too one-dimensional and difficult to get into. She wanted something she could open up and get to the bottom of, something she could hang on the arm of a chair and knit out of, plus something she could use for other purposes, such as transporting a box of pastries or lunch!
She began folding paper until she came up with a simple, square-bottomed, tote structure. Using this design, she constructed the bag with rustic, durable linen and natural, vegetable-tanned leather handles that are removable so the bag can be washed. The pattern for the bag comes with the handles so you can either sew your own, or buy the Cocoknits ready-made one. Either way, instructions are included for tying on the leather handles so when you spill wine, coffee or anything on your bag, no problem! Remove the handles, wash the bag, and reattach!
This medium bag is 16.6” square and can hold a whole lot of yarn, notions, a gift, or whatever you’d like to throw in there! This bag includes one pre-sewn bag and instructions for pre-washing and adding our no-sew handles. LISTING IS FOR BAG ONLY (does not include the handles, which can be found here).
