Got crappy t-shirts?
Have you recently started Spring Cleaning and noticed an abundance of random t-shirts you’ve somehow collected over-the-years but never seem to wear? Well, instead of throwing them away or donating them, I have a way to re-use them and save yourself some money and save our landfills from more plastic trash, considering an “estimated 8 billion pounds of plastic bags, wraps and sacks enter the waste stream every year in the US alone”. “Up-Cycle” your crappy t-shirts into trash bags, beach bags, purses, etc!
**An easier way is to:
1. turn the bag inside out
2. cut the sleeves
3. stitch along the bottom
4. turn right side out….ta da!
Here’s a picture of my boyfriend, Stephen doing just that!
A great blog where the author knits different types of bags using recycled material.
Now you have found a way to cut the dependence for plastic bags AND how to reuse those crappy t-shirts!
