On a rainy weekend, nothing is more comfortable than sitting around at home in your favorite T-shirt and jeans. If you’re like us, kid makers, you may have a whole collection of clothes that you don’t wear but dont’ want to throw out … especially favorite t-shirts. Whether you outgrew it, it’s stained or it’s just last year’s style, we have the perfect upcycling fix: BAGS!
We all carry a lot of things this time of year, like a book bags for school, grocery bags for apple picking, and of course, trick-or-treat bags for Halloween! Grab your oldest summer tee and start making.
T-shirt Bag Project Ideas:
- Not confident in your stitches? Check out these no-sew fringe bag instructions from Tealou & Sweetpea.
- We love the great photos for this grocery bag how to from Between the Lines – and that it was inspired by those crazy bags grapes come in.
- This t-shirt backpack from Instructables is perfect for gym class.
T-shirt bags are a great example of one of kid-makers favorite types of making: UPCYCLING! What is “upcycling”?
