So Easy! So Handy!
Okay, so you got a t-shirt that is too faded or may have a tiny hole so you can't give away but you're attached to your shirt and don't want to use it as a rag. We have a few of those around the house and I decided to make some T-Shirt bags with them - giving these old favorites a new life. I enjoyed this project because I did not need to drag out my sewing machine. We used the bags on our shopping trip at the mall and it held up just fine. Here is a tutorial on how to make your own T-Shirt bag.
