1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / RRR Challenge 1: Hulk shirt to lunch kit on: August 21, 2010 10:22:31 AM
I made a lunch kit from a Hulk t-shirt.  I was in a swap where my partner wanted a super hero themed lunch kit or pencil case for her son who is starting kindergarten this year.  I looked high and low for super hero fabric to make these items, but couldn't find any.  So I decided to transform a t-shirt into a lunch kit and use it for my RRR challenge (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=351332.0) at the same time! 

I am not good at taking "in progress" photos, so there are some lacking, and some that I do have are a bit blurry Sad


this is the t-shirt as it started (after chopping off the bottom and sewing the two sides together.

Then I cut off the mesh sides, and the sleeves. (no photos)

I sewed the sides up and sewed across the corners to make a square bottom. (also, no photos)

The sleeve was opened up, and added to the front of the t-shirt at the neck to add some height to the bag, and the original front of the t-shirt became the back.   The sleeve became the flap closure.


Then I took some stretchy ribbing to sew around the whole opening to secure the lining to the hulk bag and to even out all edges.


I sewed a snap on the back flap, an on the front to act as a closure.


Here it is all closed up


and here is the back of the lunch kit, that was the front of the shirt


It was kind of challenging to make something and not alter the images, but it was lots of fun!
