“Tee Bags” repurpose old t-shirts

August 24, 2008 · Print This Article

Filed under: ,

Invented by a little kid, the “Tee Bag” is a reusable shopping bag made by reusing an old t-shirt.

Why has nobody thought of that before?

Okay, perhaps considering at first blush it sounds a little scuzzy, worn looking, and even smelly.

But of course that doesn’t have to be the case. After all, it’s up to you what kind of t-shirt you use, and nobody ever said that view was meant to

represent the height of fashion. I think a Tee Bag is a great view for kids to carry things like gym shoes and athletic clothes in, or it could be handy for lugging dirty garden tools around the yard or for collecting sea shells on the beach.

    Thank you so much for the nice comments about the tee-bags– they are a great way to recycle and re-purpose! we wash our tee’s thoroughly before we make them into bags, and the really scuzzy ones usually become rags, not bags.
    Please note that we didn’t come up with the idea– we just put the tutorial with photos online for everyone to enjoy and learn.
    Keep it green!!

Got something to say?
