Simplicity itself: a cleverly sewn piece of linen, with four corners that meet in the middle. Add leather handles if you like!
Available in three sizes. Bags and leather handle kit are sold separately via the drop-down menu below.
We were excited to learn that Julie Weisenberger of Cocoknits had been working on a beautiful, practical, easy-care bag that hits the sweet spot of project bag and casual tote.
With joy, we welcome the brand-new Four Corner Bag. It’s flat-out adorable.
The Four Corner Bag is an easygoing, lightweight way to hold anything you need to carry, from your knitting to your groceries. Julie is quick to point out that its square, flat-bottomed design makes it the perfect way to transport a box of pastries, should you be a frequent or even occasional pastry-toter.
The three sizes give you good options for capacity.
It’s easy to keep your Four Corner Bag in lovely condition: it’s both machine washable and machine dryable. (Have we mentioned how much we love the durability, strength, and easy care of linen?)
The Four Corner Bag works without handles, especially for small knitting projects that you want to keep separate in a larger carryall or handbag. But the Leather Handle Kit provides an easy, no-sew way to add handles, and turns this bag into a fun little moment of DIY. No sewing required!
The leather is natural and vegetable tanned. The leather handle kit includes:
- 2 leather straps (16″/41 cm × 0.5″/13 mm)
- 4 leather “washers” (1″/2.5 cm × 0.5″/13 mm)
- 4 leather cords (2 mm x 5″/12.5 cm)
- Instructions for attaching to a bag
- Instructions for sewing your own cloth bag
When your bag requires washing, remove leather handles, reattach handles to the bag after washing and drying.
Sew Your Own
And if you’re super crafty, you have the option of just getting the leather handle kit, which comes with instructions to sew your own Four Corner Bag. That Julie thinks of everything!
