Stay tuned and learn like making a purse out of a T-shirt.
Steps to follow:
First of all, you will have to look for a short-sleeved shirt that you do not use and that you are willing to turn into a bag or beach bag, to do the shopping, etc. It is worth remembering that the bigger the shirt, the bigger the resulting bag (of course, right?); what we mean by that is that it is better to wear wide shirts.
Similarly, as for the print of the t-shirt, you can look for some color or decorative motifs and no longer have to do anything else, or opt for a white t-shirt and give your personal touch with ink, beads, etc..
When you have the shirt, place it on a flat surface like a table or on the ironing board and cut to the sleeves and neckwith the help of scissors. The cut you make on the neckline will then be the length of the handles of your bag, so the more you cut, the bigger the handles of your bag will be and the bigger the opening you can put your things through.
The next step will be sew the bottom of the shirt which will then be the scholarship fund. You can do it by hand or by machine, as you prefer; what is important is that you first turn the shirt inside out, especially if it is printed, so that the seam is on the inside and then it is not visible.
If you have chosen a white T-shirt to turn into a purse, now it’s time to decorate and colour it as you prefer. This is a great activity to do with the children of the house and together create their own personalized bags.
This way, you will need special fabric paint -which you will find in craft shops and fabric shops- either in spray or to apply with a brush; if you want, you can also use beautiful designs as a model to paint on your future bag.
That’s it! You’ve already got your T-shirt bag made to use in any occasion and surprise all your friends with this cheap and simple craft.
