No sew fringe T-shirt tote bag

No sew fringe T-shirt tote bag:

What you'll need:


- A big adult T-shirt ( If you use a small T-shirt you will end up with a very small handbag)
- Scissors

How to do it:

  1. Lay your tshirt flat, cut off the neck band, the bottom seam and the sleeves
  2. Cut from the bottom up about 5″-8″ long, 3/4″ wide strips all the way across the width of the shirt (cut depending on the variation of fringe you want
  3. Pull each of the strips down to turn them into little noodle looking things 
  4. Tie the matching front and back strips together in double knots. Tie all.
  5. Now you want to cut the neck hole of the shirt into a deeper scoop.
  6. Cut the top of the shoulders so that you now have 4 straps to work with.
  7. Tie the left front shoulder to the right front shoulder. Do the same for the back. 
  8. You now have a tote bag! Make any additional cuts or changes to the scoop of the “neck” until you are satisfied with the look of your bag.

Enjoy!
