    they are wonderful - useful, look great and it seems like a fun project, too!
    have you tried not turning them upside down, but using the shoulder parts for handles, and closing the t-shirts at the bottom? it looks like an obvious way to do it, because of the shape, but maybe it would not be strong enough? I suppose I could try it out myself...:-) thank you for sharing!

      I haven't but a tank top would be great for that. great idea!

        sunday afternoon time was well spent today, and now I have two bags ready - the style you describe and a tank top one, and I must say I like your style better, the other one looks too much like... a tank top. what's next: the bags will be gifts and put into good use!! thanks again!

    I think my step one is to learn how to sew :)

    How long do these bags last realistically? Seems like the lifespan might be fairly short?

    • Delia Randall

      They are durable and long lasting. They hold up in the wash well and everything. Just make sure to not cut your slits too large or too close to seams and you're good to go. The kind of t-shirt you use also can matter. Stay away from the tissue thin knit shirts.

        That's great to hear! I'm so pumped to see old tees can generate a creative idea!

  • Hillary Newman

    Such a great idea! I have a ton of shirts sitting in the back of my closet that would make a perfect bag.

    I love the way you used colorful t-shirts to make the bags :)
