Well, this project is a great way to turn these objects of sentimental value into something she can actually use!
This bag can be made from any size shirt, and can be sewn by hand or sewing machine! Don't worry if you're not an expert at sewing, this project is pretty forgiving. I also include instructions in most of the steps for those of you with sewing machines, or those who want to trick things up a little!
Step 1: What you will need
Two spools of thread in the color of the two shirts, or some wild crazy color that will show up against the fabric
Pins and at least one needle
Measuring tape or ruler
Chalk or pencil, something that will mark the fabric and wash off
Newspaper for a pattern (not necessary, but can make measuring and cutting easier)
