T-Shirt Tote Bag Craft


Working as a teen librarian I get to come up with different program ideas that usually have to fit into a somewhat small budget. I saw the idea for making tote bags using old t-shirts on Pinterest and thought it would be the perfect project for my teens!

So easy...find a t-shirt that you no longer wear or pick one up at your local thrift shop, (which is what I did)...

and cut around the arms, neck and then cute fringe along the bottom of the t-shirt. Tie off ends of your cut pieces of fringe in a single knot, and then tie again, only this time tie the neighboring fringed piece with the other neighboring fringed piece so that you no longer see any little holes in the bottom of your bag.

For another variation of this project you could tie off your fringed ends on the inside of your bag. So fun and EASY!!
