Eco-friendly Bag

Thursday May 4th I hosted an environmental event, where we made shopping bags from old t-shirts. Instead of adding old t-shirts to the trash we made them into bags. We had two ways to make these bags. First and foremost though we needed to cut off the sleeves and cut down the neck to create that handles. Then we turned the shirt inside out. The first way we made the bag was to fringe the end of the shirt and knot it like a tie blanket. The second way was easier and we just cut a small hole in the hem of the shirt and used a safety pin to thread a piece of the shirt from the neck though the hem and tie it off. After that turn it right side out and it is ready for shopping.
