Lay t-shirt flat on the ground/table and cut away the sleeves and collar area.
Make vertical cuts along the bottom of the shirt, about 7” length long and 1” width apart.”
Gently pull each strip to stretch out the cotton.
Cut off the seam at the bottom of the shirt. You may keep these to make a longer handle for the bag.
The 2 strips at both side of the shirt need to be cut apart at the seam such that they form strips to be tied together.
Tie each front and back corresponding strips together using 2 basic knots such that they do not come apart. This forms the base of the bag. And you are ready to use it.
