If you have kids you know the problem: they grow out of all their clothes before you know it. So here something you can do with a T-shirt ...
First you need a kids T-shirt, not to small! It has to be big enough to make a bag out of it!
First turn the T-shirt inside out and pin the bottom of the T-shirt together. Now you have to sew the parts together.
Turn the T-shirt with the right side up and pin the top of the shirt a inch down. Begin sewing 6 inches from the middle of the T-shirt.
Now you fold the T-shirt like in the picture and pin the arms. Sew the lines, but only on the top of the T-shirt.
Now you have to sew a line just above the sewing line on the top of the T-shirt.
Put one of the sleeves a little bit in the other one. Pin and sew.
Now you have to decide where you want your buttons to go. Put pins in the place where your buttons should be and use a rayon to draw ...
Use a zig-zag stitch to make two buttonholes on the place where your crayon is. Use a scissor to cut out the button holes.
Pin the sides of the sleeves like you can see on the picture and sew.
Now sew the buttons on and your bag is READY! You can put something in the bag trough the top op the T-shirt.
