Recycling is the best way to minimize waste. And less waste means a better environment. This Recycled T-Shirt Bag is such a great idea to reuse old or not-so-favored t-shirts, instead of going straight to the dump.
You don’t know how to sew? Well, it’s not a problem because you don’t need to for this project. All you need is a T-shirt, a pair of scissors and your hands. And you can do it in just a few minutes!
Where can you use a recycled t-shirt bag? There are plenty of ways where you can use it! Instead of buying plastics and paper bags, use them instead when grocery shopping. Do your kids want to bring their toys in the car? Let them use their t-shirt bag and place their toys in it. You can place the extra things you need to bring along with you when going to work, school, beach. All that means less or no plastics to throw away.
They can be a great organizer at home, too. Place those old shoes in each bag and hang them in one corner to keep them off the floor. Place your dog’s or cat’s toys in those recycled t-shirt bags and place them in your pet items corner.
How to make the recycled t-shirt bag?
Check your closets, wardrobe, or drawers. I’m sure you will be surprised that you have some t-shirts that you have already forgotten. That means it’s their time for their next life…I mean, next use!
Choose a t-shirt that you like to start with.
Then get your best scissors.
How to Make a Recycled T-Shirt Bag:
Lay the t-shirt flat to easily see the part you will be cutting.
Cut both sleeves off, staying as close to the seam as possible
Then cut the neckband off, again staying close to the seam
Cut ½ to 1 inch wide strips, about 6 inches long measured from the bottom of the shirt.
Starting on one end, tie the strip sets (front and back strip as shown) together using a double knot.
Repeat this process until all of the loose strips have been tied together.
Your recycled t-shirt bag is ready to use! SERIOUSLY! It’s that easy.
