Handmade Monday 36

Time again for another Handmade Monday! As promised last week, here is my 3rd Project of the 30 day Challenge – the T-shirt Tote. This was quite a nice quick and easy project so didn’t take long to complete! I got the idea from a Pinterest Post I saw a few weeks ago, which gave a really quick tutorial on how to convert a t-shirt into a tote bag! I had a few t-shirts lying around that I no longer wear, but still liked and couldn’t give to the charity shop,  so thought they were ideal ginnea pigs for my next project!

Very simply, lay out your t-shirt and cut off the sleeves, as close to the seam as possible. Get a dinner place and place around the neck of the t-shirt and when happy with the look, draw around and cut out. Turn Inside out and sew the bottom of the t-shirt together, I also boxed of the bottom to give more shape and voila…here it is!

It has now been renamed the chopper shopper!

Next weeks 30 day challenge is the Cath Kidston Bag!

  1. What a clever idea – great way to keep a fav t-shirt too, even if it doesn’t quite fit any more! I have quite a few of those and now I know what I could make! Well done – brill!
