Upcycled T Shirt…Tote

Posted on: 2013/09/13

I have a t shirt that My Love is not a fan of so I used it tonite in this tutorial. I have a few T shirts from different fundraising events that I know I will not wear again. Now I will be able to reuse them as something new.Image

I flattened the shirt out on my work surface.

Image

I took a dinner plate and put it over the top of the shirt.

Image

Tracing the plate with a water soluble marker (please disregard the water drops on the shirt….did not complete dry the plate in between bags)

Image

Cut along the trace so it looks like this.

Image

Next you cut just this side of the seams on the sleeves.

Image

After a miscut on another shirt I recommend cutting the sleeve as I show in the picture. Takes an extra moment but worth the time.

Image

Turn the shirt inside out and pin along the seam.  I used a zigzag stitch. I also used the T shirt seam as a guide as to where to place the presser foot.

Image

And Tote Bag Done.

Image

Just another view of the Tote Bag.

Image

This is just a shot of me holding it by the handles.

Image

This is the 1st one I made

Image

This was so quick and easy. Have fun!
