Refashion Camp Day 2: How to Make a T-shirt Bag

by This is Carrie on September 21, 2010

I’ve done this t-shirt bag project with lots of new/young sewers, and it’s always a hit.  Loosely based on this tutorial from Martha Stewart, the bag comes together easily and quickly, leaving plenty of time for some creative freezer paper stenciling.

For added technique and vocabulary, I suggest a adding nice boxed corners & making french seam on the bottom of the bag for added strength.

*Note: The “T-shirt Refashion camp” series will cover the projects I did with a cute group of 8-11 year old girls this past summer, but the projects are great for begging sewers/refashioners of any age.
