10 No Sew Tshirt Recycling Ideas. Ten minute no-sew recycled t-shirt bag! Tutorial time!

Ten minute no-sew recycled t-shirt bag!

I got a gig teaching a recycled t-shirt project at the library a few months ago, with a request for a recycled tee bag – the only bags I’d made from tees in the past had required sturdy sewing, and I didn’t want hand-sewing to be the only thing holding the bottom closed in a class version of the bags, so I started brainstorming about some kind of hand-sewing-friendly or no-sew bag idea…. and here’s what I came up with!

The simplest version of these bags is great for smaller tees, or the more light-weight kind of girl-tees – just turn the bottom of the shirt into a drawstring and tie it closed! As you can see, even with a not huge tee, this will still leave a significant hole in the bottom of your bag, but for purposes like grocery shopping, this size hole shouldn’t really matter… But to make smaller holes, just make more than one of them! Here’s a bag bottom with 2 holes: You could make it rounded, V-shaped, or squared like this one: My finished Sonic bag! DIY - Husbands Large T-shirt to fitted.

I have been married for four years, all of which my husband has been a coach for the Eagles.

DIY - Husbands Large T-shirt to fitted

I will embarrassingly admit that I do not own one single Eagles T-shirt. Why? Honestly I'm not really sure other than the fact I have no idea where to find a cute one, and the ones my hubby brings home are all larges. For the game against Camden Fairview I borrowed my future sister in law's beautiful cute shirt, which obviously wasn't an option to wear the next consecutive day (for clear reasons that it's just tacky and I'll admit I was going to try and pull it off but I'm pretty sure Baby Dotson did a drooling number on it).

So what am I supposed to do? I began researching "no-sew" fitted t-shirts and didn't like all the fringe exposed on the sides or how tacky they made the necklines. Hence the DIY project came into action. This project took maybe about an hour total (but once you do it once I have a feeling it wouldn't take that long in the future) and cost me an old t-shirt = FREE. First side. DIY - Ready Beach Tote.
