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.

Ok, first of all, LOVE IT! Kiss Second of all, I want a tute (so I can rip off your creativity). Wink And third, am i the only one who doesn't know what an alko bag is? Huh

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.
