Friday Crafternoon- Reusable Shopping Bags from an Old T-shirt

Going green is important, but it can also be fun- and reusable shopping bags are easy to find in a store, but wouldn’t you like to recycle something to make your own? Grab an old t-shirt and follow these instructions on how to make a bag that you can wash and reuse, while getting rid of some old tee’s you have lying around! Cutting slits in to your new bag is also smart for carrying around produce. Now sewing machine? No problem: lots of craft stores sell an iron-activated adhesive that is as secure as a needle and thread, or you could try sealing the seam with hot glue!
