DIY IKEA Bag Dress

IKEA's Frakta bag (the big blue one) is handy if you've purchased a bunch of impulse items, and still pretty useful if you want to store stuff around the house. I'll admit that converting it into clothing hadn't occurred to me, but it turns out to be surprisingly easy.

At IKEA Hacker, Adriana demonstrates how anyone with a little sewing know-how can make the bag into a mini-dress, though it's self-evidently not a style that anyone could pull off. For a more practical bag repurposing, check out the messenger bag conversion.

    I personally would be too chicken to pull this off (except maybe at a dress-up party). I love the idea, though. Looks like it would also make a fantastic apron.

    "...though it’s self-evidently not a style that anyone could pull off."

    I think you mean 'everyone'. As it stands, it sounds like you don't think anyone at all (i.e. no one) could wear it.

    This is like Lady Gaga's version of trackies!
