Linen bags are sturdy, practical and a great way to transport heavy loads of shopping, books and other items home. However they can tend to be 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 collection includes two shopping totes and two book bags with long handles. Both of the shoulder bags also have key tags for easy access to your keys or library cards. Make one or a whole set so you have the perfect bag for your next outing.
