  • Old t-shirt

  • Scissors

  • Ruler

Step 1:

Lay t-shirt flat on the ground/table and cut away the sleeves and collar area.

Step 2:

Cut off the seam at the bottom of the shirt. You may keep these to make a longer handle for the bag.

Step 3:

Make vertical cuts along the bottom of the shirt, about 7” length long and 1” width apart.”

Step 4:

The 2 strips at both side of the shirt need to be cut apart so that they form strips to be tied together.

Step 5:

Gently pull each strip to stretch out the cotton.

Step 6:

Tie the corresponding strips together using 2 basic knots so that they do not come apart. This forms the base of the bag and you are ready to use it.
