Reusable Shopping Bag Made From a Tank-Top




This is a step by step on how to make a reusable shoppiing bag out of a tank top.

Step 1: Tank Top

First you need a tank top, preferably one that is little wider, and has some sort of interest to it.

Step 2: Pin and Cut

Second, you must turn the tank top inside-out and pin the bottom where you will sew it shut. You can either sew it straight across, or rounded depending on how you want it. Then cut the excess fabric around the pins.

Step 3:

Sew around the edges you have pinned and then turn right side in.

Step 4:

You now have a bag you can use to shop or just wear everyday. Easy right!

    What a great idea, and with built in handles! But do you have any suggestions regarding the bottom seam? I'm worried about a single straight seam tearing and things falling out. Would it be better to overlap the bottom and make two seams (one on each side where the material overlaps)?

    yeah you could always do the double seam, it is just a matter of getting it to folder over right. That is a good point and idea.
