I love a good (and EASY) T-shirt upcycle and this one is exactly that! If you've got ten minutes and a quarter, you too can make a fabulous trick or treat bag that is kinder and gentler on the earth. Not to mention a major upgrade from the pillowcase that I used to use as a kid!
Whilst shopping at my local Goodwill Clearance Center, I started to run across super cute Halloween kids shirts....all throughout the year. And I ended up with a stack of 'em. For this project, I used just one from my stack along with a pair of scissors and a sewing machine. If you have a little one just learning to sew, this is an excellent project!
If you'd like to see a brief video demonstration, you can check that out here...it's less than two minutes! Or you can follow these simple steps:
1. Cut both of the sleeves and the collar of the shirt away.
2. Turn your T-shirt inside out and use the bottom hem as a guide to sew a straight line across the bottom opening of the shirt.
3. Turn your bag right side out and DONE!
It really is that easy. And what a great way to balance out the waste of all those candy wrappers!
