The iconic blue IKEA bag is not just a great bag for collecting products as you walk around IKEA and carrying them home in!  Take a look at these 12 things that people have created using the bag, some of them you can buy ready made on Etsy!

 

I am not sure how long IKEA has been using that iconic blue bag, but it seems like it has always been around in IKEA Stores!

IKEA’s blue bag is actually called Frakta, but I doubt many people actually know its name! It is just the blue IKEA shopping bag to most people!

Those bags are great for carrying your stuff around IKEA, and also for moving your purchases to your car or to the bus stop!  But people have got really creative with those blue bags too!

I have used those IKEA bags to collect dry cleaning and transport it to and from the dry cleaners, as laundry bags, as great large bags for moving, as a beach bag, as a recycling bag, and for so many other things too!

But you can get very creative with that iconic bag! So check out these ideas for turning the bag into completely different items!  Some of them you can even buy from Etsy, so you don’t even have to make them yourself and put in the effort!
