One of the top trends this year is... an IKEA bag?

Not so long time ago the internet got flooded with pictures, posts, memes, and videos concerning one particular item – the characteristic, big blue shopping bag from IKEA. Everything began when Balenciaga, a French luxury fashion house, added an item to their online shop.

It was a (surprise, surprise) big blue bag that looked suspiciously similar to FRAKTA, a 99 cents shopping bag from IKEA. However, a skilled observer could notice the difference. First thing was the logo on it, and the second was the price on the label – a humble $2145 per bag.

It caused quite a stir, and the internauts, being one of the most creative groups of people, immediately began to turn it into a huge meme. All types of clothing made out of IKEA bag started to appear on the web.

One could not browse the social media without spotting the distinctive blue clothing – shoes, skirts, caps; pretty much a complete wardrobe with many add-ons. Even IKEA itself took the chance and presented some new design trends made out of their bag 🙂 It seems that the eye-catching, deep-blue clothing with an IKEA logo may steal the catwalks this year.

Now, here is where my story begins. I was spending last Saturday with a friend at her house in the woods, and during a coffee break, we were talking about this recent bag-frenzy. Then we realized that an IKEA bag was hanging on a hat rack, right in front of us. What a coincidence! 🙂

We could not miss such an opportunity. Sadly, none of us is a master seamstress, and there wasn’t much time before the noon, so no fancy clothing here, but we figured out it makes a lovely flowerpot, as well as a hair band.
