Introduction: Reduce and Reuse in One: T-shirt
Today we will be making a reusable bag from a old t-shirt. It is a fairly simple process. It's sew or no-sew depending on your preference. Now lets get started.
This is my first instructable, so please leave constructive critisism only. Be nice.
Step 1: Materials
You won't need a lot of materials for this task. Here is what you need:
Tape: no sew
Sewing machine or needle: sew
Sewing thread: sew
Step 2: Cutting
You will first need to cut off the sleeves. It is very simple, but if you have to, refer to the picture below. Cut on the dotted line.
Step 3: Sew
If you choose No-sew, then skip this tep
First turn the t-shirt inside out. Then just sew one along the bottom of the shirt. Again you can refer to the drawing for help. You are now done. You have a nice reusable bag that you can decorated.
Step 4: No-Sew
For all you no-sews, take out your duct tape. You will have to turn you t-shirt inside out. Then, tape up the bottom of your t-shirt. As always, you can refer to the picture for help. You now have a great, no-sew reusable bag. Decorate it.
Note: I did not use duct tape for the pictures.
