Some things to keep in mind
-Face like sides together, with the inside of the jacket on the outside. This will keep your seams on the inside of the jacket.
-Line up the patterns with the grain of the fabric. This is not essential, but it will make for a nicer end product.
-Take notice to the inside and outside of the Ikea bag. It is different, even if it is hard to tell.
-Cut things together. This is also not essential, but it will save time.
-When taking apart the Ikea bags, use a stitch ripper. Do NOT cut them apart, you will not have enough room for the pattern pieces.
Step 1: Print the pattern
Step 2: Get all your pieces together
-Cut two back pieces: Take apart one Ikea bag completely, including the hem.
-Cut two front pieces: Take apart one Ikea bag. Do NOT take apart the hem. Line up the longest edge with the hem. This will save you having to finish that edge later If the handles get in the way, carefully rip them out and resew where you ripped stitches.
-Cut two hood pieces: Use two of the leftover bag bottoms from the previous Ikea bags.
*It will take four Ikea bags to complete this project.
Step 3: Put the sleeves together
-When unfolded, you should have two sleeves that match diagram A.
-Then sew the short edges together, as in diagram B.
Step 4: Put the back together
-When unfolded, the back should resemble the diagram.
