  • old t-shirt
  • pair of scissors
  • needle
  • thread
  • marker


Step 1

To start, turn your t-shirt inside out and fold it in half, then using a marker, trace along the surface of somewhat like a curve. Cut it afterward, set aside the upper half, then sew along the edge of the entire bottom half of the t-shirt. After you finished sewing the bottom, draw some slits on the bag that you want to cut. (It’s up to you how wide or close to each other you want it, just leave enough room so the holes won’t rip.)

Step 2

Once you’re satisfied with the slits, cut them out, as well as the handle. After this, flip the bag inside out. Stretch the bag a little bit to set out the holes. Your DIY grocery bag is now finished.
