I made 2 of these last night and the orange one I just finished up. They're made from old t-shirts I wore when I was a teenager. I was going to donate or throw them out or something but thought of the idea of making grocery bags out of them instead since I was in need of some! Cheesy Here they are!


I just finished this one up. I added some little felt circles at the bottom cause it would of been kind of boring without anything.


with stuff in it!

First one I made. I'm not so fond of the handles. I think I may change those out. Too shiny.


holding stuff!


This one has a weird bleach stain on it. I was going to throw it out but it'll work good for groceries instead! Cheesy


With stuff in it!

That's it! I think I'll make more of them. They were fun and easy to make. Thanks for looking! Cheesy

I'm not trying to sound like an idiot, but how did you make the handles?

For the top one I just used some of the extra fabric I had cut off the shirt (when making it all even), cut it into 3 pieces, braided the 3 pieces then I  sewed the braided pieces to the bag. The other 2 I had taken separate pieces of fabric, folded them in half, sewed it shut then turned it inside out.  Smiley

Excellent bags and I like the braided handles on the first one the best.
