Upcycle with Ikea - Cushion Covers into Bags

Posted on January 18, 2015 at 2:10 PM

And -- she's back! Me, that is. Lots going on at the beginning of the year but I think I'm ready for 2015 now! 

I'm a big fan of Ikea's lifestyle blog, Livet Hemma. Not so much for looking to buy anything but because some of the ideas posted by Ikea's resident designers and others are worth taking a second look at. Many of the ideas can be reinterpreted using what you've already got and can recycle.

Here's an idea from guest blogger, Sara Zetterström from over at little miss fix it. She shows you how to upcycle (extra) cushion covers into neat storage bags. And who doesn't need more storage? All you do is add a little fabric loop for hanging up the cushion cover. So simple! Ms. Sara uses Ikea's SANELA cushion covers to make her bags but that's no reason to go out and buy new ones. Why not dig around your linen closet see if you've got any cushion or pillows you don't use and make these?

Since I have at least half a dozen cushion covers lurking in my linen closet - all unused - this is one project I will definitely do. And you don't even need a sewing machine (I don't have one). It would be simple enough to hand stitch. Easy, peasy. I like this!
