Reusable Shopping Bag: Another Crafty Reuse for T-Shirts
Martha Stewart has a fabulous idea for making a reusable shopping tote out of t-shirts. What a fun way to reuse all those souvenir and college tee’s. This bag is simple to make:
There is only one line to sew and a couple of places to cut (sleeves and neckline). I’m already thinking up ways to fancy this up (reinforcing the top and using ribbon trim and handles, etc…). Visit Martha’s link to watch a video and get step by step directions.
This project is simple, so even my youngsters can make these with minimal help… the bags make wonderful sleepover packs. (Pssst… you can also make pillowcases.)
