DIY tote bag with t-shirt

The other day at the Etsy Craft Party we did a workshop to teach this craft. It is very simple and you don’t need to know how to sew to make it. Basically you need a t-shirt, scissors and a safety pin. You can do many things with t-shirts and in this time the result is a tote bag that you can use to go shopping, to go to the swimming pool, to save your crafts or for whatever you want.

First, cut the sleeves of the t-shirt and the neck the way you want. After that, cut three strips from one of the sleeves and stretch them slightly.

Make six cuts at the bottom of the t-shirt taking advantage of the hem which usually t-shirts have without cutting the stitching.

Then we will pass the strips we cut earlier by the cuts we’ve just done with the help of a safety pin.

Once we have already passed the three strips of fabric by the bottom of the t-shirt, we close the openings with double knots to secure them well.

Now you have a very hippy bag with tassels hanging. The strips of fabric can be of a different color or other type of fabric so you’ll get a nice contrast. If you don’t like the fringes you can make the knots on the inside of the bag so they’ll be hidden. If the knots are well made it can bear weight without problem. I really encourage you to make one, it’s super easy!
