Remember when I made that Big Bag from a couch cushion cover from the IKEA As-Is section?
It was a….cinch!
And just reminds of the many reasons I love IKEA: Smart, affordable, simple….and creatively inspiring.
Funny thing looking at those old photos….I’m wearing the same shirt I eventually turned into my semi-homemade Maternity Shirt Tutorial. Wow. Was I really pregnant THREE years ago??
It’s weird to think that I’ll never go through that again.
But it’s not weird to think how many more countless times I will go to IKEA.
Haah. I guess they’re part of the family!
And probably part of your family too.
So I was thrilled when the curator of the IKEA museum in Sweden contacted me about my Sewing Room from the old house. The museum (which is not open yet) is currently putting together exhibits for both the BILLY Bookcase and the KLIPPAN sofa—showing how universally loved these items are. And showing what people do with them. She noticed that I use my BILLYs to hold fabric and asked if I would contribute my story to their blog.
Um. Yes please.
So if you’d like to hear a little BILLY tale, head on over!
(please note: this post is NOT sponsored by IKEA. I just truly love them.)
(and p.s…..can you spot any of the First Day Dress fabrics in there?? I see three….)
