I didn't have any major problems with the fabric. It's really a fair weight cotton. The ONLY thing is that it frays like it's its job. I zigzaged EVERY seam on the interior of this bag. If I left pieces too long or played with them too much they would start to fray - so I would recommend either cutting with pinking shears (if you have them) or leaving a little bit bigger seam allowance in cutting to deal with the fraying. I bought another length of a different pattern while I was at Ikea (it's going to be a duffle bag I think... at least some of it is Wink ha) and I test cut some of it and it frays really easily as well. But otherwise - it sews nicely, lays flat, irons well, and doesn't run when you wash it. So yeah - for the price, Ikea fabric is AWESOME.

yay thats great to hear! I see a trip to Ikea in my near future hehe...

Love your bag! Great design with all the pockets. I adore that fabric! I have seen those in the Ikea catalog and just drooled hehe... did you have any problems or challenges with that fabric vs any other 'normal' fabric? thats been my biggest fear in buying some!

p31 creative We would love to have you. But first you have to make sure you fulfil the requirements that are needed to partake in a swap. Here is the link to swap requirements under participant in a swap. Read through and let me know if you descide you want to participate. I hope you can.



I meet all the criteria above, except the parts of having 15 posts and being a member one month. I have JUST joined, I am reading and posting every night, I dont think I am up to 15 yet. I would be tickled pink to participate and show how awesome new people can be! I am currently sewing 50 makewup bags for a craft fair im doing in a few weeks and would absolutely love to have a reason to do a fancier one. Just let me know either way! Thank you <3
