Greetings all!

Soooo what had happened was...I took inspiration from pfeffermint_ish and their lovely tutorial (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=101237.0), realized I had t-shirts that needed to be turned into something other than T-shirts, had lovely blue polka dot fabric lying around and the need to procrastinate.
Thus creating the American Idol T-shirt bag

Got this amazingly fly shirt at the thrift store, no singing necessary Grin

Yeah and this bag is HUMONGONEOUS

I fit 4 binders, 3 textbooks and a clipboard in there. That's almost a semester's worth of crap in one bag. Incredible...

annnnd while I was at it, I also made the New York Bag (complete with accent)

This one is tiny though, it's so cute! It would be perfect for summer! But alas...the leaves are on the ground... Sad
I used that same blue polka dot fabric for this one too, it's massively thick and lovely.

Annnd just so you know, I made the handles out of strips of the rest of the T-shirts that I stretched and braided. I thought it added a whimsical touch to it.

Alrighty, well ya'll have a fantastic Turkey Day and thanks for looking!!
