To construct this T-shirt bag, it is recommended that you have:

1. One old t-shirt, or t-shirt of your choice
2. A sewing machine, or be hardcore and sew it by hand
3. Some para cord, or other strong rope like material of your choice
4. Scissors
5. Something to keep the string untangled, I used a LEGO

Been awhile since you posted this, but it was just what I needed to turn an old football shirt that my son did not want to throw out into a usable gym bag. Awesome! Thanks!!

wow! really nice, i have made bags of this type before, but not as nice. too bad it cant qualify for the t-shirt hacks. you cant wear it anymore... maybe sewing your bag to a wearable t-shirt would make it wearable and make it qualify! very nice job. -gamer

Well, before I read the full instructions (they were hard to find because they weren't linked to the main contest page) I made this. I interpreted the contest as hacking a t-shirt into something new again, besides just making a different looking t-shirt. Never know, they may still count it. Atleast I hope they do. Thanks for the feedback -Gunk
They should. I'd vote for it -- it's very good.
Awesome! Wow, this was posted pretty fast...
