10 t-shirts, serger or sewing machine, scissors, ruler, pencil, pins
Step 1: Cut the T-shirts Into Blocks
Repeat with 7 more shirts and you will have a total of 16 squares.
Step 2: Sewing the Blocks Together
Continue connecting squares until you end up with four rows of four squares.
Now sew all your rows together and sew a seam around the entire thing.
Blanket portion of the bag, finito!
Step 3: Adding the Flap and the Straps
Flap: Cut a rectangle measuring measuring 12 by 10 inches. Finish the edges of that rectangle as well.
To fold your blanket into proper position, Lay the blanket right side up. Fold in two sides then fold it in half. Now fold it up from the bottom square by square.
Pin your rectangle piece to the very back panel, flip it over, and mark where the ties go.
Open it all up again and pin your straps to the appropriate panel.
Use a straight stitch to attach your flap and two straps.
Step 4: Making It Tie Together
Then cut two 20 by 2 inch strips and sew around the edges.
Now sew the strips to the appropriate panel using a straight stitch.
Step 5: Making the Pillow
Cut the scraps into smaller strips, then cut two more 12 by 15 inch squares. Serge around 3 sides, stuff it with your scraps, then serge around the 4th side.
And voila! Pillow!
Now just fold the pillow up inside the blanket, tie it up, and go get yo'self some nature!
