From this....

To this...

I used <a href="http://www.vanillajoy.com/tutorials/t-shirt-bag-tutorial">this tutorial</a> to whip together the tote.  Actual work time was somewhere between 20 minutes and a half hour.  I gotta be honest, it had been several years since I had sewn anything, and I was pretty shocked that this didn't come out horribly disfigured, lol!

Also, FYI: Watch out with using 15+ year old t-shirts.  I had to make my base a little wider because I managed to put a hole in the bag while ripping a couple stitches.  Oops.

I was so happy with my sewing job that I even went on to make a few throw pillows.  Yay for newfound crafting confidence!  Tongue
