Who doesn’t have tons of old t-shirts that they don’t even wear anymore? I have tons so I decided to make a tote bag out of one of them. I hate to sew, so I thought of a way to do it without sewing. It landed up being very easy to make. These are so easy to make that you can make a dozen of them to take with you to use instead of plastic or paper grocery bags. Why throw more plastic bags into a trash heap, when you can help the environment by not using these wasteful bags anymore. Follow the easy-to-follow, step by step instructions below.
How to Make No-Sew Tote Bag Craft from Recycled Old T-Shirts
Crafts Materials Needed
- Old T-Shirt
Take out your t-shirt. Cut off the sleeves and a portion of the collar as well.
This is what your t-shirt will look like after you cut off the sleeves and collar.
Now cut slits on the bottom of the t-shirt (going through both sides). Cut each slit about a half inch apart. We are going to use these slits to tie the bottom of the t-shirt together with double knots. If you don’t know how to tie knots, then the instructions below will help.
Now pull the 2 tabs sticking out until it is tight and you have one knot. Now do this process again to make a double knot.
After you have tied all of the slits together, your bag will look something like the above picture.
This is what your bag looks like with stuff in it. It is very sturdy as this tote bag is filled with very heavy books. I hope that you had fun.
