Is your closet full of old t-shirts that you don’t even wear anymore? It’s sometimes hard to part with your favorite tees, especially when you are feeling nostalgic. Instead of storing them in the corner of your basement, give those tees a new life! Preserve those memories by recycling your t-shirts and turn them into cute tote bags. Not only do you get a great new bag, but your precious t-shirts can finally see the light of day. Plus, it’s super eco-friendly!
This is also a great project if you have shirts that are too big, or ones that your kids have outgrown. Check out this video tutorial to learn how to make your own bag, all you need is a t-shirt and some basic sewing skills.
