T-shirt Shopping Bag
It seems like we all have old t-shirts around. Some are favorites that we hate to get rid of. Here is a good use for them. The pic above is a t-shirt from the Viroqua Food Co-op. We forgot to bring in our own bag so they lent us this one. A company in town donated these after having a t-shirt drive and had them sewn into bags. It might be hard to tell from the picture, but the sleeves and the neck are cut off then the bottom is sewn shut with a zig-zag stitch. To carry around, just put your arm through the arm holes and put stuff in through the top (neck opening). Since it is stretchy, it holds a lot. I love this idea. Steve has so many old & new t-shirts that I could make a lot of bags.
What is your favorite t-shirt from your collection?
