DIY An Eco-Chic Shopping Bag


An old tee


A needle and thread


First,you need to cut the sleeves and neck off your t-shirt carefully, leaving a tank-top shaped piece. Turn the t-shirt inside out, then sew the bottom hems shut. Use a boxed corner technique to strengthen the stitch. To do this, put your hand on one bottom corner of the bag and pinch the side and bottom seam together, making sure to line your side and bottom seam up to form a triangle shape.

Then, stick a pin about 2-inches in from the corner. Repeat on the opposite corner. Sew a straight line right where you placed the pin, forming a cross with your seams. Repeat on the other side.

Then,cut 1/2-inch slits into the t-shirt at 1-inch intervals in rows carefully, cutting through both sides of the bag. Continue cutting until the majority of the bag is cut with slits. Flip the bag back to the right side, and your eco-chic shopping bag is done.
