T-shirt Bag

Re-purpose your old Tees! Great beginning sewing project for kids - they can use shirts they've grown out of!

You will need:

  • T-shirt with a hollow collar - one that doesn't have any seams that would block a safety pin from traveling through it.
  • Ruler & Scissors or Cutting Mat & Rotary Cutter
  • Sewing machine & Pins
  • Safety Pin

Trim the bottom and sides of the shirt until you create a rectangle.

Pin all around the cut edges. This is a knit material so be sure to use plenty of pins!

Sew a 1/4 inch hem around the cut edges. Remember to back stitch at the beginning and end.

Remember the t-shirt material you cut off the bottom of the shirt? Cut off the hem. Discard or use as a headband. Cut off a 1 1/2 inch strip from ABOVE the hem. You may also have some different colored t-shirt material left over from when you made a Tshirt Rope Bone for Fido!

Cut a little hole in the collar of the T-shirt.

Attach a safety pin to one end of your t-shirt strip.

Push the safety pin and strip through the entire collar.

Remove the safety pin and knot the two ends.

Turn bag inside-out.
