Ikea hacking is fun

A friend gave me a heap of small pieces of Ikea fabric. This is just a small selection but amongst my favourite. I am totally in love with these birds.

Just birds on their own though is a bit much for me so I cut up left overs from the nappy bag I finished yesterday (also from her left overs) and quickly made another bag. These sorts of spontaneous projects are just the best.

This nappy bag is special because the prototype was designed by my friend so that it would be able to hang on the clips that most prams have on their handles these days. I'm not sure that the flap is long enough though so I think I will redo that and also add a magnetic fastener. Then, once the photos are done, both of these bags will go into my shop.


  1. Beautiful work! I love the way you've pieced the fabric around the bird, what a great idea.

    I'm a bit bird-fabric obsessed but have not bought any ikea fabric. I like the look of it and I really like how you've used it.

    That nappy bag looks fabulous too. Well done.


Thankyou for your kind thoughts. I appreciate and read everyone even though at times I may not be well enough to reply. Thankyou.
