Chana Putnam shows us how to upcycle an old t-shirt into a bag. This is a simple tutorial to follow and it only takes some cutting and one straight stitch and you have yourself a handy tote / shopper bag. I must confess to liking this tutorial all the more because I do have a bit of a sweet tooth for reese’s!
The materials and equipment that you will need to follow this tutorial are listed below.
