Primary Technique: General Crafts

Occasion/Theme: Winter

Easy

Materials:

  • T-shirt
  • Aleene's® Fabric Fusion® Peel & Stick Tape™
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Optional Tulip Glitter Bond and Tulip Glitter

Instructions:

  1. Determine what size you want your bag to be - keeping in mind what size of shirt you have. Cut along the bottom, cut off the sleeves. Turn your shirt right side in. Time to seal the bottom!


     
  2. Add tape to seal the two layers. Press to seal.
     
  3. Next, add another strip of tape and fold over for double strength.
     
  4. You'll need to reinforce the bottom - first you'll add a strip of the tape inside the bottom layer and press the top layer. Smooth out any bumps with your fingers. Next, add another strip along the top layer and fold it over. Press so it is bonded. Turn your shirt inside out so the front is showing.
     
  5. To give your bag a professional look, make some gussets! This will give your bag a flat bottom so it can hold items in a more balanced fashion. Pull out one corner at the bottom of the bag. Add a strip of tape. DO NOT remove the tape backing yet! Put your hand inside the bag and press the pointed corner inside to create a moth. Line up the ends, then pull off the  backing of the tape and press in place. Repeat for the other side.


     
  6. Decorate the front of your bag as desired!


     
  7. Cut notches in your bag around the top, leave room to "poof" the top. Insert a long strand of ribbon - long enough for you tie a big bow.
