Make a no-sew T-shirt tote bag in minutes.
no-sew T-shirt bag
I can’t be stopped with the no-sew crafts thing! Finally, as one who is not a whiz with needle and thread, I’ve found the crafts for me. First, we had the no-sew rainbow fleece scarf, then we had the no-sew T-shirt bracelets, and now… a no-sew T-shirt tote bag. Once again, these take minutes to make and all you need is a T-shirt and a pair of scissors.
A few notes about these tote bags:
- Don’t cut too far down below the arm holes, because the tote bag handles with stretch over time.
- That said, anything too heavy will make it stretch more. This bag is great for stuffed animals, carrying around extra scarves and mittens, and for other lighter things.
- I didn’t want the tote to be too huge, so I used a women’s small size T-shirt.
how to make a no-sew T-shirt tote bag
you will need:
what to do:
With the chalk, mark the top of the T-shirt as shown (with a scoop around the neck, and then around each sleeve) and trim with scissors.
Cut off the hem at the bottom of the T-shirt. With the chalk, draw a straight line about 3-inches above the cut bottom. (Or, if you want a smaller bag, trim the T-shirt higher up.) With the scissors, 1-inch strips from the bottom of the tee up to the chalk line. Tie the front and back of each strip with a double knot.
Turn the bag inside out to use.
