The BYOB Project
I was asked to participate in a local 3R's Fair - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle which is something I love to do anyway so I wanted to present a project that might be fun and interesting and practical, too. So I found a great idea for recycling t-shirts into functional bags...I have a link on our website where you can download a pdf file with some idea reminders that I will also show in this post.
There are a number of variations with this project and it can be very simple and basic or more fussy...it's up to you! I'll show you some of the things I've done with one of my favorite t-shirt bags!
With this shirt, I opted to add a fringe and some horizontal cuts in the main part of the bag which is fun and funky as long as you aren't carrying a lot of cereal boxes but wouldn't it be great for ribbons?!
Detailed instructions to come...
