DIY Shopping bag and tee shirt

Some races give away tee shirts but I don't really like tee shirts that have tight necklines. So, I decided to turn the shirts into a shopping bag and a tank top for my husband.

Here's how I did it.

I started out with the tee shirt and then trimmed the neckline.

Then I cut away the arms.

After I cut one off, I used it as the pattern for the other arm.

Then I ironed down the seams where I wanted to stitch them.

Then I sewed the raw edges.

And the shirt and bag were done.
Simple sewing to turn something I wouldn't use into something I definitely will use and my husband will too.

I love that you made your own bag and new shirt. I was thinking that I want to sew my own grocery bags. That way I can toss them in the wash, and use up fabric.
