Turn the tee shirt inside out, line up the bottom hem, and sew or serge the bottom edge together, just above the tee shirt hem.Tee bags: a tutorial to recycle a tee shirt into a shopping bag « Wild Onion
Line up the sleeves seams and cut off the tee shirt sleeves. It works best to cut off the sleeve seams!
With the shirt still flat, cut out the neck: cut close to the neck ribbing at the sides of the neck
then cut a “scoop neckline” including the back of the tee shirt in the scoop.
Here’s what it looks like when all the pieces are cut off. Knit jersey (tee shirt fabric) doesn’t fray, so you don’t have to hem any of the cut edges!
Turn the bag right side out, and go shopping!
