When Cocoknits founder Julie Weisenberger thought about the perfect project bag, she dreamed of a bag 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 her lunch! So she began folding paper, origami-style, until she came up with a simple, square-bottomed, tote structure.
Using this design, Julie 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 else on your bag, no problem. Remove the handles, wash the bag, and reattach!
