We all use bags for so many things. We use them in the market, at school, for outings and much more.
Won’t it be nice to know how to make our own bags?
We can use them or even sell to our friends and neighbours.
It can also be so much fun to make something new!
Here is one way we can make our own bags. It is a project you can work on alone or with friends.
What you need
- An old t-shirt (A thick shirt is better to make the bag strong)
How to make it
Cut out the neck and hands of the T-shirt like in the picture below.
Cut the bottom of the shirt into thin strips. Each strip will have two sides from the front and back of the shirt.
When you are done the bottom of the shirt should look like this…
Take the 2 sides of each strip (that is, from the front and back of the shirt) and tie them together. Make sure it is very tight.
And you’re done!
You can put things in your bag like books. You can also decorate it anyway you want. You can paint it with poster colour or draw on it with a coloured marker
Finally, you can also turn the bag inside out for a different look.
Let us know in the comments if you will be making your own bag too. We want to know how it goes!
Feel free to share pictures of your own t-shirt bag on our facebook page.
