http://the-big-red-barn-blog.blogspot.com/ yesterday & saw a post about using old t-shirts for shopping totes. I just fell in love with this idea!! I was going to wait until Monday to try this for myself, but I couldn’t help it. I had to try it tonight! While the kids were running around with Daddy outside, I got to work.
Using my sewing machine I then sewed both sleeve areas & bottom. I actually sewed the bottom of the shirt a few times over just to give it more strength since it will be carrying item daily.
I’m going to surprise my sister tomorrow with her new tote! Her & her husband love to hit the farmers markets on the weekends & this will be just perfect to carry all the yummy finds. Plus, its so nice to just be able to toss this tote in the wash when its time for a good cleaning.
I can’t wait to make more!! I have so many ideas to give these totes some fun looks!
