Basically, we’ll turn the bottom of a T-shirt into one or more drawstrings and tie them closed, cut open the top and the sleeves, and your tee is a shopping bag!

The simplest version of these bags is great for smaller tees, or the more light-weight kind of girl tees – just turn the bottom of the shirt into a drawstring and tie it closed! Even with a not huge tee, this will still leave a significant hole in the bottom of your bag, but for purposes like grocery shopping, that size hole shouldn’t really matter. But to make smaller holes, just make more than one of them – you can make the bag bottom with as many holes as you want, but 3 works well, so the example in the tutorial is with 3 holes. The 1-hole version of this project takes 5-10 minutes, but the more holes you have, the longer it takes (by a few minutes).
