How to Make a Bag from a T Shirt
Have a T shirt that you adore but is too small for you? In only a few simple steps and a spare hour or two, you can make a cute bag from that T shirt which you can wear everywhere, still displaying the cherished shirt logo or picture.
Gather the needed materials.See the Things You'll Need below for the complete list.
Cut off the sleeves of the T shirt, making sure you have left at least 1 inch (2.5cm) of fabric from the neck hole.This space will ensure that there is enough room for straps.
Turn the T shirt inside out.Sew across the bottom to seal the base of the bag.
Turn it back right way facing out.Cut the gardening thread/thick thread to about the length that you'd like the bag to flow down your back––measure how long you'd like it to hang when the strap is on your shoulder.
Sew on the strap.Measure the strap length and cut the length leaving about one inch (2.5cm) extra at each end to attach to the bag. Use a sturdy stitch and plenty of thread––the straps will take all the strain of whatever you're carrying in the bag and you don't want this to unravel or break.
- Making a strap: You can use more T shirt fabric. Use a strip of fabric about 5 inches (12.5cm) in width and fold each edge to the center. Stitch down the center to create the strap, then add to the bag. Or, as shown in the image here, you can add something different from the bag material, such as leather strap or strong, wide ribbon.
Enjoy your trendy transformed T shirt bag!
