Ikea Messenger Bag





Materials: Ikea shopping bag

Description: Using 2 Ikea bags, yellow fabric, thread, bias tape, a zipper, the SY ikea sewing machine and the pattern found at this link you can create this upcycled Ikea messenger bag.

Using the Ikea bags as the pattern’s body and flap and the reclaimed straps added to the messenger bags straps and decorative front give the messenger bag a decorative homage to the blue and yellow Swedish furniture mecca.

    Okay, I’m definitely making this one. I work at IKEA and this is exactly what I need to carry my uniform and lunch to and from work. Thanks!

    haha, I had the same idea as “anonymous april 20″. I work at Ikea too, and thought this was a great way to get my stuff and go to work!
