I have roughly a million old T-shirts sitting around my house and instead of throwing them out, I decided to make something with them. Most of them are a bit large on me or so old that they really shouldn’t be worn in public. The one I used today was something like 10 years old and never actually worn. I figured that after ten years, if I haven’t worn it yet I probably won’t so I might as well turn it into something cool.
I finally decided on making a re-usable bag. My friend Ella actually has turned me onto the idea of giving up something per month that I usually consume heavily. Plastic bags seemed like the perfect thing to give up. I actually have a crocheted market bag that I love to use, but I’ve only got the one and sometimes I need more than that.
1 Old T-shirt, preferably made of soft knit Jersey
Sewing Machine, preferably with thread
Rotary cutter, you can use scissors
This was a ridiculously easy project. I think it took me like ten minutes in total, and with more experience I could probably learn to do it in 5. This is a really amazing way to re-use and recycle things that you already have in my house. If you’re opposed to using plastic bags then this tutorial is most assuredly for you.
Lots of Love,
