Upcycled T-Shirt Tote Bag DIY

Today I have what is likely the easiest DIY in the whole world. Well, maybe not the very easiest, but it is terribly easy. If you are anything like me, you have a few old t-shirts that you love but never wear and can't bring yourself to get rid of. If that sounds like you, boy do I have some great news! With the help of a sewing machine and a pair of scissors, you can turn your old t-shirts from concerts, fundraisers, college, and wherever else into original and very earth-friendly tote bags. In four simple steps, you can bring new life to your old t-shirts.

Step 1: Find a t-shirt.

Step 2: Turn the t-shirt inside out and stitch the hem shut. I like to go back and forth a few times to make sure it's really secure. Also, I'm pretty terrible with the sewing machine, but if I can do it so can you!

Step 3: Cut off the sleeves and the collar.

P.S. I was supposed to post this DIY back in January after this outfit post. Way to go, Lauren! Haha!
