Your 'T' will now look like a work out shirt.
Take your quilting square, plate, or what ever you want to use and center it. This is going to create the opening to the bag, so make it as big as you see fit. I made mine a bit bigger so it will hold anything!
Use your rotary cutter, or scissors to cut out the shape. If you use scissors I suggest first marking where to cut first.
While it is still inside out, place or pin the bottom of the shirt together and hem it shut. It may be a good idea to do a double stitch at this point.
If you really want to get fancy, you can fold your corners and sew perpendicular to the hem line.
And there you have it, a re-usable shopping bag. (Thanks to my cute husband for holding it up for me!)
Nice large opening to hold all kinds of good stuff!!
This would also be a great way to make candy bags for Halloween, gym bag, book tote. If you use a T-shirt without a picture, you can add one with the DIY screen printing technique we tried a couple days ago. The possibilities are endless!! Here is a pic of the original pin I saw.
