Shirt To Bag

There’s a new project up at The Sewing Republic… and it’s mine! This tutorial for transforming a shirt into a backpack is probably one of my favorites, not just because it’s a great way to recycle a t-shirt, but because it’s fun and easy to make. In fact, since making the original, I’ve made a few more. This one was requested by Taylor, she’s been using it for toting around her clothes for practice:

The only difference between this version and the original T-Shirt Drawstring Bag is the shirt size. The original was an adult t-shirt which gave me plenty to work with, however, this one was a child’s XL – which meant that I had to slightly scale back the dimensions of this bag. I figure I’ll make an even smaller version when Easton is ready to start carrying around his own ‘supplies’ (i.e. toys) over to grandmas!

    Stacy, this is perfect! My husband has been using my bag (like this) and I wanted to make him his own, and now I can. Thanks so much!
