These 25 uses for IKEA bags will leave you speechless

Everyone knows them and we all probably have at least one of them at home: the big, blue "FRAKTA" shopping bags from IKEA. Not only are they popular because they're so resilient, but they are also extremely versatile in their applications. You'll be surprised by some of these 25 creations that people have come up with. 

1. Moon boots

What is Sweden most famous for? The inventor of these boots has certainly stuck to the country's main stereotypes: IKEA and low temperatures. What could be more practical than a pair of warm winter boots that serve as a constant reminder of the highly successful Scandinavian furniture store?

2. Apron

With a few snips here and there, you'll soon have the perfect, dirt-repelling apron. Not only will you salvage your clothes during the barbecue season but you'll also be quite the topic of conversation among your guests.

3. Hat

Even in the tropics, the IKEA bag can help — namely, by providing you with the right headgear that is ideal for the climate.

4. Picnic blanket

The bag can be a practical aid when used as a picnic blanket in summer.

5. Corsage

This may not be the winner for every occasion, but it's most certainly a head-turner in any case.

6. Oxygen mask

In air-polluted Beijing, people have other worries. The "FRAKTA" bag even offers the right solution here.

7. Plant pot

In the garden, the plastic bag makes for a perfect plant pot. It's so stable and can hold a great deal of soil.

8. Swedish costume

The Swedish classic has been crafted into something completely different here. How much work has gone into this costume? For all that effort, you'd hope it at least costs less than a conventional dress.

9. Lunchbox

With this eye-catching lunchbox, your child will never forget their school days.

10. Coat

For those rainy summer days, the "FRAKTA" bag also comes in handy. And that doesn't simply mean grabbing the bag and putting it over your head. No, this person has preempted the weather and has already taken the time to sew a detailed (and almost fashionable) coat.

11. Giant bag

What is better than having one IKEA bag? Having one that's three times the size!

12. A different kind of bag

"FRAKTA" can still be used as a bag — nevertheless it does have the potential to look more decorative or at least funnier than the original. Quite reminiscent of Dr. Who's time machine, don't you think?

13. Diaper bag and changing mat

For new parents, this tip will catch your attention, because not only can you use it as a diaper bag, but you can also lay it down as changing mat for your baby.

14. Mittens

The question is whether anyone would actually wear these mittens, but they are definitely suitable as home decoration or to liven up your car.

15. Rope bag

For sports enthusiasts, this idea is brilliant: slightly remodeled, "FRAKTA" can serve as the perfect rope bag for climbers.

16. Stylish dress

Another fashionable idea is this stylish dress, which will certainly draw people's attention.

17. Rucksack

If you can't afford a new backpack for traveling, then go with the blue plastic bag. The fact that it's resilient as well as water-proof makes it ideal for backpackers.

18. Cupboard

Is it a cupboard or a work of art? It's really quite subjective. But for all those who have just moved and don't have furniture yet, this will do the job.

19. Wallet

If your wallet doesn't quite look as good as it once did, just craft a new one. Blue might not be the most elegant color, but at least it will be made of a tough material and will stay intact for longer.

20. Sandals

So you either have boots for the colder months or this nice pair of sandals for summer. All year round footwear from a bag!

21. Cellphone pouch

The "FRAKTA" bag can also come in handy for carrying your cellphone. If you leave the straps on, you can use them to hang it around your neck — perfect for traveling.

22. Embroidery

If carrying your bag is not enough in itself and you want it to become part of you, you can simply embroider parts of it onto the seam of your pants, for example.

23. Wet wipes packet

This is suitable for every trip: a homemade packet of wet wipes.

24. Fanny pack

You can carry the bag on you all day long and still have your hands free: you'll never go wrong with a good old fanny pack.

25. Bikini

Last but not least, this is an absolute eye-catcher: this bikini may not be suitable for long-distance swimming, but at least you'll turn some heads with it.

So if these 25 ideas weren't enough, soon you'll be able to triple the number. This year IKEA is releasing a gray model and next year it'll be bringing out a white one with blue dots. The possibilities are simply endless!
