Don´t you love a good Ikea Hack? It´s fun and usually inexpensive and just clever and did I mention fun!. My cute Ikea signe rug basket checks off all of those boxes. So let me show you how to make an Ikea signe rug basket in just a few simple steps. It will take you maybe half an hour using a sewing machine. So easy.

How To Make An Ikea Signe Rug Basket

I had two of these cute signe rugs at home, that I originally bought for outside. They were outside for a day or two when I got tired of picking them up at the other end of the garden because of all the winds we get here… So that was that for the rugs. I folded them and stored them away. Oh well, no big deal, they were cheap at the end.

But, since I didn´t really have a use for them as rugs inside or outside, I kept thinking of what to do with them. So a basket was what came into my mind. There can never be enough storage baskets right? A place looks a lot tidier when you collect little items in a basket don´t you agree? And especially if it´s a cute basket with little tassels on it!

1.  Lay rugs on top of each other.

2. Cut off one third approx. and sew around three sides. Leave the fringe part open.

3. Fold the rug over aligning the seams over each other. Sew along the below marked corners.

4. Cut off excess corners on each side.

5. Time to fold inside out. This is how the bottom should look like.

6. Fold over the fringes and tie them into tassels using thread.

7. Fill it with magazines, electronic devices like a tablet, plants, etc. Have fun!

    Katrin, another amazing job!! Such a creative idea to upcycle those rugs! You’re right, things do look so much more tidy when they’re gathered in a basket. This is wonderful!

    Those baskets are amazing Katrin! If you were to buy them on an shop they would cost a ton but now you can make them for a fraction of the cost, what a great idea!!

    That’s a most lovely and useful idea. We’ve got plenty of these rugs (old ones but still pretty). Could sew one into a basket and put the others in, guess that would be a pretty sight and we’d always know where to look for them…
    Thank you for sharing, dear Katrin!
    Have a great day,

    What a pretty basket! I love the colors, and the way the tops is turned so you can see the fringe. You are always coming up with such creative ideas, that make a big impact, yet so simple to do.

    So very kreative! Such a beautiful and practical use for these rugs. Definitely an incentive to pull out my Singer (that hasn’t been used in years). The little tassels must have been a bit time consuming, but well worth the effort. Thank-you for another amazingly easy craft.

    I wish you could see me right now Katrin, I am smiling from ear to ear. What a brilliant idea. We don’t have IKEA here but I’ve got some rugs almost like yours and they’re also stuck in a cupboard because they’re too light weight and slippery to be “safe” rugs. Thank you for making my day, I can’t wait to do the same thing, love, love, love it!!!

    Katrin this has to be such an easy hack. And those rugs cost practically nothing but you’ve turned it into a basket that is now worth so much more. Love how you turned the tops over with the cute fringe.
