Whew I made it! Repurpose Thursday- long sleeve shirt

In leu of the freezing nature of Colorado in February, I thought it would be fun to take an old long sleeve shirt that doesn’t fit or is too well loved to be seen with in public and make it into a fab bag!

So, my lil broham Rick left this shirt at my place like 3 years ago, it’s not becoming to my body type at all so it became my new bag! Thanks Rick!

The Shirt

First I folded it in half


Then I cut the arms off, and across the chest


Next I cut out the neck line area


I pinned the neckline to my ‘bag’ with the tag out, really only because GAP makes awesome tags


I then sewed the pocket to my bag leaving the top open-but I didn’t take a picture because well *duh*
I then put one sleeve inside the other


Wrong sides together
Sew together


Hehe I changed my mind and did opposites cus I think it’s much more punk rocker šŸ˜‰

I went on and sewed my hand area to the side of my bag


I did end up X boxing these for extra protection to this sew a box and then an x from corner to corner

Now I have a new bag! Perfect for trips to the park where my coach bags aren’t appropriate!


Coreys attempt at picture taking!
