DIY: No Sew T-Shirt to Purse Transformation

Now that summer weather has officially ended, we all have a fair amount of short-sleeved t-shirts laying around that we will never wear again. Pick out your favorite one (or least favorite one?!)  and follow along in a tutorial that involves only 3 supplies, no sewing, and takes less than 10 minutes. Gosh, I love easy crafts!

Supplies:

  • Hot glue gun & glue
  • Fabric scissors
  • Old (but cute) t-shirt

Step 1: Gather your supplies.

Step 2: Lay out the t-shirt flat on your work surface.

Step 3: Cut off the two sleeves and collar.

Step 4: Cut the two sleeves in half at the top.  This will allow for you to create handles.

Step 5: Tie the sleeve strips together to create a handle for the purse.  Afterwards, tighten the knots and stretch the fabric to create a sturdy handle.

Step 6: Put hot glue on the bottom hem of one side of the shirt and fold the other side of the shirt over onto the glue.  This will create a bottom for the purse and make sure nothing falls out!

Step 7: Show off your new creation around campus! P.S. You’d be surprised how spacious your new purse is!
