A Repurp

One day a shirt,

the next day a bag.

Jersey was easier to work with than I thought – very stretchy and very forgiving.  Lining the bag with regular quilting fabric helps the jersey keep it’s shape.

I wore this shirt until it shrunk a little too much.  The sleeves make fun straps, don’t they?

  1. That is a great bag! Such neat stitching in the photos. I have been cutting up Sophie’s outgrown patterned T-shirts into a quilt. has taken quite a while and the sections are getting bigger as the t-shirts are getting bigger to it is no longer an very even size, but we shall get there.

    I now have photoshop! So I shall be using your tutorial this easter break.

    • I’ve been saving my boy’s T-shirts to one day turn into something. Not sure what yet…

      Have fun with the tutorial! I’ve found creating designs that I dream I can turn into fabric is kind of addicting.

  2. That is super cute! I have some rather shrunken t-shirts I’d like to do this with… I have to buy replacements first, though, and I don’t know when that’s going to happen. 😀
