Ikea Signe Rug Bag DIY

 It's been years since I've ventured foot into an Ikea. I'm certain this is on account of sooner or later in my twenties, I at long last swore off continually assembling another dresser with a hex key once more. Never again. After my first genuine employment, there was a considerable measure of pride in supposing I was above form it-yourself furniture, paper lights, plastic waste wicker container and Swedish meatballs. Gracious, how distant I've been. My current visit to Ikea set off a hundred lights and I was likely most energized when I went over an enormous canister of $3.99 woven mats. Hi!! This is the thing that I've been passing up a major opportunity for? DIY, DIY, DIY, DIY. The Signe mat is awfully little for its expected utilize. It is, be that as it may, the ideal size for such a large number of different things, including an expansive market tote. Bingo. In the wake of brining home the carpet in each shading way (I had overlooked how you generally spend more than you plan to at Ikea), I tested and made the most effortless strategy to making the ideal summer shoreline sack. Furthermore, just you hold up, there will be numerous more Ikea motivated instructional exercises (or should I say "hacks") coming soon!

You’ll need:
  • an Ikea Signe rug (approx 22? x 33?)
  • leather purse handles (I bought mine here)
  • sewing machine
  • heavy duty sewing machine needles
  • waxed cord
  • sewing pins
  • scissors

Begin by pressing your mat level with an iron on a steam setting. After the carpet is dry crease the closures in around 2 inches and stick them set up. 

After each end is collapsed in, sew a straight line ideal over the periphery. Since the floor covering is so thick, you'll need to utilize an overwhelming obligation, cowhide sewing needle. 

Likewise, on the grounds that the material is so profound, you might need to utilize your hand to direct the floor covering underneath the machine's foot so that the mat doesn't misalign. Once both sides are sewn, overlap the mat down the middle with the periphery sides confronting in. 

Presently sew the vertical edges together. When you get to the top, over the collapsed segment, you might need to direct your machine physically if the machine is experiencing serious difficulties through the thickness. 

Once both vertical sides are sewn, squeeze the base corners and stick them set up. 

Sew the corners, utilizing the vertical lines of the mat as a guide. Rehash on the opposite side. 

Turn the pack right side out. Perceive how sewing that corner give you a pleasant custom fitted edge? 

Presently it's an ideal opportunity to strengthen the edges. I likewise like utilizing the vertical lines of the mat as a guide here. Sew the edges together, with the littlest sew you can clear out. Here, I'm around 1/8? from the edge. 

 You can stop sewing right before you get to the fringed fold.

Include the calfskin handles by first threading your needle with waxed material line. Tie the finish of the line into a twofold bunch and draw the needle from the base of the pack, through one of the pre-punched openings of the strap.

Make your first stick and bring the needle move down, avoiding a stich. And afterward withdraw, finishing the line. This is known as a back line. 

Keep doing the back fasten until you've sewn the whole base of the strap to the highest point of the pack. Rehash on whatever remains of the sides. 

Include two or three tufts and voila, you simply transformed a $3.99 pack into a charming (and tough) tote!
