Two summer totes

Need a summer tote? Here’s one (two, actually!) that you can make from a Solig table runner. Thanks, Nicole.

She says, “I made a tote using the Ikea Solig table runner, stapler and duct-tape (and a little inspiration from Jodi Kahn’s book: Simply Sublime Bags). One Solig runner will make two totes. The fabric is the perfect width. The inside is lined with water-proof and easy to wipe clean duck-tape – making it an ideal lunch tote.”

Can’t get enough of totes?

Summer sizzles!
Summer items like the Platta decking is back. This is the time to load the cart with them if you want to make hacks like this window sill, spa mat, or bathroom flooring. Remember to check out Ikea’s Summer collection too. Aah … they always make me miss the salty sea and sand between my toes.
