The tote is pretty easy to make, even for people like me who aren't great with scissors.
You will need:
Lay your t-shirt flat on the ground.
You will want to cut off the sleeves and a scoop in the neck.
The tee I used already had a pretty low scoop, so I didn't need to cut one out.
Cut the bottom of the shirt to make tassels.
I opted for wider, about 1/2 inch strips and cut them across the whole width of the shirt.
Tie the bottom tassels in to knots by using the front and back of the shirt.
I found them to be secure after knotting them each twice.
I made an oopsie and accidentally cut the top of the t-shirt, when I should have kept it in tact. I ended up tying the top just like I did the bottom tassels to complete my tote and it still looks cute.
This makes the perfect tote, whether it's for the beach, toting kiddie gear, trips to the gym, or hauling all your wedding planning essentials. My favorite part was that I didn't have to sew a single thing, because the only thing worse than me with a pair of scissors is attempting anything with a needle and thread.
Have you ever made a T-Shirt Tote? What would you use yours for?
