Thrift Shop Shirt Bag
This was an idea I found in "Green Craft"....a fun publication that comes out 4 times a year...all kinds of ideas using re-cycled items. This one was making a tote bag from two mens shirts...I found two coordinating shirts from Goodwill...one being blue plaid...the other red plaid...plaids are easy to sew given the straight lines. As you can see the main part of the bag is cut from the front of the shirt...using the button up the front with the buttons and the pocket....the handles are cut from the sleeves....embellishments are cut from scraps...I did some saw-tooth trim which was not in the magazine but I thought it added something. It was a fun project!
