Ikea Hack

You know those gigantaloid bags you buy at Ikea for $.50? Quite a while ago, K told me about her friend, a fellow crafter over Knit or Get Off the Pot, who pointed out how easy it is to make two bags from one. I love what she did with the otherwise not-very-useful bags. Just made these myself:

It's official: you rock! Fabuloso. I'm going to set my socks aside for a few minutes and finally get mine done tonight. NICE.

How cool is that. Now you will always have a bag in your purse, if your out shopping and had forgotten your canvas bag at home.
