DIY T. Shirt Bags

These are super easy to make! They fold down tightly so are really handy stored under the front seat of your car for a bag while out, or in a backpack.

Cotton is best, don't use overly stretchy fabric, for obvious reasons!

  • Start with your cotton t.shirt like the one below.
  • Cut off the sleeves and deepen the neckline.
  • With your scissors, cut strips along the base of t.shirt, approx 1 cm thick, and 6 cms long, like pic below.

  • Tie each second strip (both layers) in a firm reef knot, then the next two, and so on until all are tied together on bottom of t.shirt.
  • And that's it, so simple! These bags are quite stretchy so can fit lots in them, but are also strong.

We love them! They also create great conversations at checkouts 😂

Send us some pics if you make some!
