Tip Me Tuesday: Re-Purposing Tees to Bags!

Today I’m gonna hang out at
Tip Junkie handmade projects 
with some re-purposed tees the girls and I made into reuseable bags!
Our easy instructions (step by step pics soon!):
  1. Snip the collar & sleeves off.
  2. Trim a loop off the sleeve & stretch it out to make a lacing.
  3. Snip holes in the bottom band,
  4. Thread “lacing” through & tie off.


Kae used a tank so there was no need to cut her collar off, but Halie and I liked the slouchiness (is that a word???) of the looser handles from the sleeves & collar being snipped. It was great way to save some of their favorite shirts that didn’t fit but I couldn’t convince them to give away. I’m thinking about making a whole stash of them (all those tees with worn edges or small stains?) for my Aldi shopping trips!
We got this idea from the Dollar Store Crafts Blog!
