Simple Linen Bags

I have enough bags.

Really.  I have too many.

But I couldn’t help myself.  The idea for these bags stuck in my head begging to be made.

linen bags
Fabric: Linen/Rayon blend from JoAnn’s + Atellier and Akiko by Lecien

A pattern for these bags is what I’ll be working on over the next few weeks.  They’ll need a name.  They’ll need some tweeking.  They’ll need some love and patience.  But for now, they’re functional.

Plus they go well with my linen tank.

    Ooooh! Love this bag – it’s delightful! Can’t wait for the pattern [if you need a tester, I’d be glad to! 😉 ]

    The one on the right looks like a peasant top. I love them both! How cute!

    As for a name: how about “summer’s sweetheart” – the gathered front reminds me of a sweetheart neckline.

    These are beautiful. Definitely something I’d be willing to sew. Or try to sew!

    Both are really sweet! I especially like the little gathered detail in the one on the right. Lovely!

    There is no such thing as too many bags – and these are awesome!

    You know, I really think you should go with Linen Tank and run with it as a name. Would really match well with Chemisette Handbag, don’t you think?!

    I Love how the white fabric compliments the linen. And the drawstring on the one on the right is fab!
