I love to recycle whatever I can. So it only makes sense to recycle your clothing too! This DIY project is so simple and costs nothing!
Step 1: Pick out a t-shirt! Heavy cotton works best since the fabric is more sturdy.
Step 2: Cut off the sleeves. I left the seems in tact to keep the handles sturdy.
Step 3: Cut off the collar. How you cut depends on how you want your tote to look. If you have a logo and want to showcase it, cut above the logo.
(I cut deep and into the design since I want my tote made inside out.)
Step 4: Turn your bag inside out. Sew the bottom (excuse my sewing job, it wasn't until I took this picture that I realized I had my thread threaded incorrectly!) You're gonna want to go back over your seem once you are finished in order to (once again) ensure that your bottom is sturdy.
Step 5: Turn your bag right side in!
There you go! My finished tote bag! I will be using this for my grocery shopping from now on!
