    Turning an old T-shirt into a reusable shopping or grocery bag is a simple, clever craft to help everyone be “green.” It’s a Good Thing that will help protect the environment. Tools and Materials Heavy-weight cotton T-shirt Pins Sewing machine Medium-size bowl Water-erasable marking pen Scissors T-Shirt Bag How-To 1. Turn T-shirt inside out and pin bottom of the T-shirt along the hem. Using a sewing machine, sew bottom of T-shirt closed. Flip shirt right side out and lay flat on table, making sure all seams are lined up. 2. Place medium-size bowl about half-way over the neck hole. Using a water-erasable marking pen, trace along the edge of the bowl. Cut along the outline, making sure to go through the front and back sides of the shirt, in order to create an opening for the bag that’s larger than what the neck hole allows. 3. Line up the hems on the front and back side of the sleeve and cut, making sure to go through both sides of the shirt. Repeat on the other sleeve. Tip: A jersey shirt would also work well for this craft, as it is already sleeveless, and it’s made of a great mesh material. * Use old rock tshirt for teenage sleep over or book bags

DIY T-shirt bag. I made one myself out of a white T-shirt (new) & then dyed it an ombre light pink & blue and it was gorgeous. Cost $5 to make. Be frugal with your dye. No need to use all of it. I used Rit dye and even though instructions say to use hot water & the whole packet of dye, I used 1/4 of the packet and didn't need hot water (lukewarm is perfectly fine).

Produce bags from t-shirts! (Courtney Turney said: Those are awesome (we made them @ MADE) -- but the slits should be vertical for horzontal expansion...otherwise the bags get longer and longer with each pound you shove in them!)

From t-shirts to eco-friendly grocery bags, such a cheap and easy diy

T-shirts can also be made into beach bags , bath rugs , blankets , and pretty much anything else you can imagine!
