I took a long drive to visit my cousin who's battling cancer today.
While driving solo I thought about t-shirts.
I know I've seen bags made out of t-shirts....
I wondered how it was done.
I had lots of time to plot and plan how I would do it.
It gave me a chance to solve a little problem instead of
thinking sad thoughts.
When I got home I destressed.
I made a t-shirt bag!!
If you have children you have lots of t-shirts.
If you have children you also know there are lots of t-shirts that go
My kids seem to wear the SAME ones all the time.
I took two shirts about the same size and put one inside the other.
Here I cut holes for the handles and pinned.
I sewed along the bottom of the bag...of course...;)
I used a 2 1/2" bias binding and sewed it on the WRONG side
(around the handles)
then rolled it over and top stitched it down.
Here's the best part!
Feed dogs down......
Darning foot on.....
I doodled a flower...
I trimmed the TOP layer off the petals
being very careful NOT to cut that bottom orange layer.
This was my play time today...
What was yours??
