T-Shirt Bags

Everyone throws out t-shirts, or donates them to their favourite charity store.  These two were part of my t-shirt collection that I didn’t really wear anymore, but were up there with the best at some point in my life, many years ago, so I didn’t want to get rid of them.  They weren’t worn out so I googled and got a few ideas for my trusty old friends.  There are plenty of tutorials out there describing how to make shopping or storage bags out of t-shirts so I decided upon these ones.  The Felix one is merely turned inside out, stitched with my sewing machine across the bottom, cut off the sleeves, leaving the seams for strength, and using a dinner plate to mark the size of the opening, then cut.  Voila!  The Triple J exploding head t-shirt is made the same at the top, but at the bottom, I cut off the seam, then used scissors to cut strips into the last three inches of the length, then simply tie knots all the way along the bottom, so this one has no sewing at all.  Now my t-shirts get a new lease of life and every time I go shopping I get to see my old favourites.  Naomi.

    I read this old adage somewhere and never forgotten it.
