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!
- 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!
