This handy linen sack can be used in so many different ways. It is the perfect reusable bag for your sack lunch or a great way to store fruits in your home.
You’ll find tons of ways to use your bag! I plan on making a few bags in different colors to use and give away.
This bag is made simply by sewing together two basic shapes- a triangle and a diamond. This is kind of geometry I don’t mind! The two shapes come together to create a stylish and clean aesthetic that I absolutely adore.
Another thing I love about this bag is that it is perfect for anyone. Women and men can use this sack, as well as children. Unlike other crafts, this one can be enjoyed by everyone.

I chose two of my favorite green shades in IL019 for my linen sack- Hunter Green and Willow. This is an ideal time to get your green linen too. The Lush Green Sale offers every shade of green linen, so get shopping and take advantage of these low prices!
I usually buy my linen when it is on sale and add it to my collection of colors. You never know when you will need a certain color! Green is also a standard color that I need…..in multiple shades.
Cut one triangle and one diamond from your fabric using the measurements provided. You can alter these measurements to make a smaller or larger sack.
The only thing you need to remember to do is keep the length of the folded measurement the same for both shapes. In this case, that is the length that measures 21 inches for both pieces of linen.
Sew along the line where the two pieces touch like in the image above. Make the seam from the inside in order to hide it (so flip the fabric inse-out to begin with). That is the first seam- only one two more to go!
To make the next seams, fold both outside corners toward the center.
Sew this from the inside (so have everything inside-out) that way the seam is hidden.Now just make a seam along the bottom of the sack. That’s the last step!
I love crafts like this that are simple and have a clean aesthetic. It is something I will enjoy using all the time.
I hope you all liked this craft as much as I did!
