I recently came across 2 sites which gave instructions for making bags from old t-shirts. This really appealed to my desire to recycle as much as possible. So I made a few bags, combining elements of both designs.
And their photos of the bags they made look far more professional than mine.
But you get the idea.
Being a dreadful hoarder, I had a few t-shirts to work with.
So I then experimented with slashing lines across the front and back of a t-shirt. It made a REALLY cool shirt – and it has been very hot lately, so it was made at the right time! The cuts also hid most of the design, which was my intention. I had a number of shirts from an event I was a volunteer at. Appropriate for the event, but pretty irrelevant to be wearing a 2007 shirt from a youth event now.
