How to Make No-Sew Tote Bag Craft from Recycled Old T-Shirts

| More

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.

    Absolutely AWESOME. Most of us have psuedo ‘memoravlia’ t’s that we can now use and smile at… What a great solution. Kudos to the troopleader— sure beats ‘christmas trees’ made from old |Readers Digest volumnes
