So here I am with again an innovative DIY idea! This time I will show you how to make no sew tote bag from your used t-shirt. You can also use a brand new t-shirt. I wore it 2-3 times but this is too large for me so I thought to make a tote from it. Let’s see how I have made it.
Things you will need-
A colourful t-shirt
Ruler and pen
Procedure- It is quite simple and all you need is some patience only! The steps are as following-
Flatten the t-shirt on floor or hard place. Cut down neatly the sleeves, neckline and the bottom seam of your t-shirt.
Using the ruler, draw even lines (like picture, draw before cutting for your ease and neatness) of approximately 7”-8” across the bottom of the t-shirt. Then cut down strips along the lines. Make sure you have drawn same number of strips at front and at back.
Now hold base of each strip with one hand and pull end of that strip with another hand. The strips will stretch easily. Repeat if it is not stretched desirably in one attempt. In this way, stretch out all the strips individually.
Now tie square knots with the strips along the bottom side. Take one strip from front and the parallel one from the back and tie them tightly. As I told you to cut similar number of strips at back and front, no excess strip will remain at the end of tying.
You are done with your tote! Take some snacks and books inside and you are ready for an outing!
You can use this at beach outings as well as for a short trip! I know all have readymade bags but self-made things are always special, right?
