The bags are so easy and I thought that when I first saw them done a couple of years ago but it has taken me this long to actually get the machine down and do it. I have even been saving T-Shirts and singlets since then and have quite a pile. At least 2 plastic bag fulls. Shhh, don't tell the husband, he hates me saving stuff and not using it it. Oh, that's right, I am and will be using them now so it's OK for him to know.
The instructions are on YouTube. Different people have different ways and even the ones I am doing are not all the same. So YouTube it. The instuctions will be better. Maybe. Yes, yes they will be.
So how do you make a bag from a T-Shirt. First get yourself a shirt that no longer fits, that has a mark or stain, that has a pretty picture on or is a nice colour. Turn inside out and sew across the bottom. I do across then back and maybe again as I don't want it pulling apart and having everything fall out and having people think it's not a great idea. Then cut the neck out to make it even and look like bag handles. Turn right way in and there you go. Take it outside and fill it with Oranges to send home with the daughter. It is such a great bag that you will never get it back so maybe use a not so loved by you shirt for this one. I have even made a few where I haven't cut the neckline because I like the look of the neck and it opened up plenty big enough without cutting. AND!!, yep there is more...YouTube will prove it...If you have it inside out you can sew across the bottom corners so that you end up with a box bottom and who doesn't want one of those!
Here are a few that I did earlier...
