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!
