Well, I just stumbled upon this project today and as it happens, I just made a shopping bag yesterday. Therefore, and unfortunately, I do not have pictures of the process. I live in Helsinki and we have to purchase our shopping bags. We always use the fabric ones. Recycle ftw! As I was attempting to fall asleep one night this pattern dawned on me. It's woven with an old tshirt we had laying around in the drawers. To add a Gothic Lolita look, i tied the ends to bows. The buttons were supplied to me from a friend in Richmond, VA. He makes his own band buttons and offensive saying buttons. This bag features Siouxsie and the Banshees, Skinny Puppy, :: dARkBRAiN design, and Subconscious Studios - Courtesy of RVAfreaks.com. BAM. I hope you guys like.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Hang on there Veehalo. I've got tons of unused tshirts here waiting for a project. How did you make this gorgeous bag?
The fabric looks shiny and not tshirty.

Can you tel us how it's done? Much appreciated.

It DOES look shiny and not T-shirty.... how did that happen?

It's a handsome bag even without the button embellishments.

that is adorable. was wondering how you get the t-shirt strips to look so good? do you just cut it into strips? sorry not trying to be dumb, just don't have much time for crafting anymore, but hopefully that is changing now as the children are getting older!

jaaa sorry for the late reply you guys. snowday is correct, this was made from an old alko bag. it was broken so i cut everything into strips, including a couple old black tshirts, weaved them, sewed (sp?) them together. made bows out of the remaining shirt material and just tied them to the ends.

May those who love us love us.
And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.
