bag this hack

i’ll not look at those big ikea yellow (or blue) bags the same again, after this hack from funk-station. two nifty cuts, some sewing and voila, you have a shoulder bag – big and sturdy enough to hold 2 laptops.

“the basic idea behind this hack is to transform a huge inconvenient bag into a small fashionable bag.” and who would have thought those big blue plastics could ever be this chic.
