T-shirt bag tutorial

The easy no-sew t-shirt bag tutorial!

Okay, okay, I know I said that I was learning to sew, but I’m still a total novice and no one wants me giving advice to other beginners just yet. I did learn how to take in a shirt two different ways last week though, and I felt like a WIZARD. It also means that after losing *mumble mumble* pounds, I don’t have to get rid of some of my most favorite button down shirts. RESULT!
I spent a few hours last weekend going through my closet to weed out things that no longer fit or aren’t my style anymore (hello bejeweled jean skirt, circa 1999). I bagged up three massive garbage bags full of clothes and shoes for the charity shops and made a huge amount of room in my closet. I feel like a brand new woman!

There were a few things, though, that I couldn’t bear to part with – mostly old t-shirts with sentimental or geeky value. Top of that list was my Jurassic World t-shirt that I got from Primark right before the movie came out last summer. I love Jurassic World, okay? I love it. More than any human probably should. Yes, I have the box set. And the Lego video game.

I couldn’t bear to part with it, and it was probably too faded for the charity shop anyway, so I decided to make it into a bag instead! This lightning speed tutorial will show you that it’s super easy, and even a kid could tackle this project with some supervision. Now get out there and repurpose your old beloved t-shirts! Eco-friendly bags for all!
