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

real men know how to sew
awesome... it is the best....<br />
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!!
This is a very easy pattern with very good results - I like the pillowcase idea
except its upsidedown :P
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...
Thanks! As soon as I saw the contest I knew what I was going to do and jumped on my sewing machine.
WOW! one of the most clear instrutables ive read for a while! well done
It's a shame that all Instructables can't be this useful. Great job.
Thank you!
Awesome idea!
