Ever thought to yourself: “man, I’d really like to destroy my sense of self-worth and spiral into an existential crisis–but like, more efficiently?”
Allow me to introduce you to “crafting,” the macrame hell where your Pinterest dreams go to die.
You may be able to tell that I’m not a big fan of DIY. Why would I ever do something myself if I could possibly shove that labor onto someone else? Time is money, people, and this bitch does not have the financial means to spend 9 hours struggling to transform a shitty-looking bag into another, slightly less-shitty looking bag.
But if you’re into that kind of thing (aka the machinations of Satan), then you’ll probably be a big fan of this “fun” and extremely difficult up-cycling project from San Diego Mitch, a man with dreamboat curls, a rock-climber’s body, and entirely too much time on his hands.
According to San Diego Mitch, those ugly IKEA bags that you’ve saved in the back of your closet to “reuse as grocery bags, or something” are finally about to have their moment in the sun: repurposed as a trendy and time-intensive DIY backpack!
I’m not going to explain it myself. That’s a DIY I just won’t do. See the full instructions here.
