I live by an Ikea! Freebie!

I have lived in four different states. Minnesota, then South Carolina for graduate school, Tennessee and now Colorado. Whew. In all that time, I have never lived where there is an Ikea. Bummer. There is now one in Minnesota, but not when I was living there. The closest one in Tennessee was Atlanta, four hours away. No thank you. Finally, I live only 30 min from an Ikea. Yay!

The first time I went with the kids we had a ball just wandering around. I didn't buy much. But, I couldn't walk out without some fabric, could I? There was some calling my name. And, I thought it would make nice bags and an even nicer freebie! I mean, look at these produce bags, with produce on them. Produce that walks around with a trowel, an onion that cries, c'mon Ikea, you're killing me!

I decided it would be nice to have a set of them and while I was at it, how about FOUR? Four sets of four super cute Ikea grocery + produce bags to win!
 How cute are those deer?
 Birds. Yes!
 Love the bold flowers.
Would you like to win a set?

I haven't been to Ikea yet, but I sent my hubby to pick up a Billy Shelf to store my fabric on! I love it. He also got me a little goose neck lamp for sewing. I didn't know they had fabric (and he didn't tell me). I'll have to go over there myself! Thanks!

Jenny said...

Oh I LOVE Ikea! Bought some fabric from there myself recently but haven't found the right project yet...

Happy Birthday Bagette Dad!!!

Tami C, the fabric area of Ikea is a DANGEROUS place, beware! This is probably the reason your hubby didn't mention it to you!
