DIY: 5 Steps to a T-Shirt Bag!

29 Jul

We did a lot of t-shirt bag workshops, and now, you can do them from the comfort of your home! If you have any variations that you chose to do, let us know in the comment section!

Step 1: Choose a beloved t-shirt that you no longer wear & make sure its washed!

No one wants a smelly bag AND! if you've never washed the shirt before for whatever reason, it may shrink if you throw it in the wash if by chance something spills in/on it during its new life as a bag.

Step 2: Assemble your tools!

Tools can be as simple as just a good pair of scissors, but depending on if you do a variation, a safety pin might be useful!

Step 3: Cut off sleeves & cut out neck area

Note: how wide or narrow you make this is up to you, the graphics on your shirt, etc. The neck area is the opening of your bag, so just be sure to keep that in mind!

Step 4: Close bottom of your t-shirt bag by cutting slits in the shirt about 1-2″ and tying a knot

Step 5: Admire your work and add this bag into rotation!

    Love this. Ive got my daughter following the 5-steps using a cool shirt that was too big but perfect for a over the shoulder overnight bag. Thanks!
