New Creations with Old T-shirts

For the past few months I have been staying at my parents house in Elizabeth City, North Carolina until I journey off to Colorado next month.  One day, I was going through my closet and I saw some old shirts that I have not worn since high school/college.  Some shirts were too cute give away, so I decided to make tote bags.

So far, I have made one tote bag out of an old pink Candy Land shirt.  The inside of the bag I used regular pink cotton fabric, and then I cut up another old t-shirt and braided the material to make the handles for the bag.  I found this unique idea on Pinterest.  I am really impressed on how the bag and handles turned out.

While I have been staying with my parents, I have been trying to keep myself busy by sewing.  I have included a few examples of more creations I just made, including a Grumpy Cat tote bag and a few zippered pouches with faux leather.  I have also included these creations on my Etsy site.  Please go check these out along with my other creations!
