Tee Is for Tote

When your child outgrows her favorite shirt, turn it into a handy bag.


  • Old T-shirt
  • Scissors
  • Needle and threat (or fusible bonding web, such as Super Weight Stitch Witchery)
  • Fabric glue (optional)


Tee Is for Tote - Step 1

1. Cut off the shirt's sleeves, collar, and bottom as shown.

2. Turn the shirt inside out and sew up the bottom hem (or close the seam with fusible bonding web). If you like, prevent the shoulder seams from unraveling by putting a few dots of fabric glue on each seam end. Turn the tee right side out, and it's ready to tote!
