I make my cute old t-shirts into grocery bags, but what do I do with the ones that are not so fashion forward? Well, now I know - shoe bags! My husband and I participate in a walk for Parkinson's disease every year & they always want to give us event t-shirts, but I don't really want to wear them. So I take them & make little baggies with the sleeves & rags with the body or what ever - well I finally turned my brain on. So without further ado - here's the how to...
- 1 old t-shirt (pretty much any size is good except baby t's (well, maybe a chubby baby))
- cutting & sewing skills (preferrably a sewing machine)
- A 10" x 14" piece of pizza box cardboard (ok, any box will do)
- 24"-30" piece of string, twine, ribbon or any other tying material
This pattern allows for 1/2" seam allowance on 3 sides and a 1" - 1.5" hem on top (your preference).
