This “no sew” project is fun, easy, and will keep all those awful plastic grocery bags from ending up in your local landfill. Follow these three simple steps and in five minutes you can turn an old t-shirt into a reusable grocery tote bag, a beach bag, or a craft carry-all.
1. Cut the hem off the t-shirt. Save it! We’re going to use it in a minute.
2. Cut away the neck and the sleeves. These can be discarded.
3. Turn the t-shirt inside out, gather the bottom fabric together, and tie it off, using the bottom hem from step 1. Tie it tightly. I wrapped mine twice and double knotted it. Turn right-side out, and you’re done!
I love recycling/reusing. Share your ideas for how to recycle old t-shirts in the comments section.
