The materials and equipment that you’ll need to make your upcycled t shirt bag are shown below.
- Old t shirt
- Something for the strap e.g. twine or leather strap
- Pencil / chalk

In 2010, China’s textile industry processed 41.3 million tons of fibre and accounted for 52-54 percent of the world’s total production. The Chinese textile industry creates about 3 billion tons of soot each year.
