Upcycled T-shirt Tote for yoga, the beach or just everyday use


This tote is made from a Ed Hardy t-shirt sized small. It has a great graphic of a female pirate. The fabric is nice and soft from use and is a grey color with white splashes of color (made to look like it was bleached but I don't believe it was).

I took pictures (shown) of this bag holding my yoga mat & strap as well as a towel as an example of what you can carry with this. You would certainly be able to use this to go shopping at the farmers market or for a day at the beach. I'm sure it would be a nice diaper bag. It would also make a great everyday use bag. I just wouldn't use this for a book bag; meaning lots of books. Definitely would carry your tablet or favorite paperback if you still read the old fashioned way :-)

In sewing this together, I squared off the bottom edge to give a much nicer finish then just a straight seem. I also attached a small edging to the openings, made from the same t-shirt and used an accent thread to add a pop of color.

The dimensions laying flat are 25"h x 17"w (and because I squared off the bottom 5"d).

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I found this t-shirt in a drawer left by a previous tenant. I thought it was cute but way to small for me. But I held on to it thinking I could do something with it. When I heard about turning old tees into tote bags, I knew exactly which tee would be the first tote I would make.

Materials Used

Just a well used soft t-shirt.

More Info

This was a Ed Hardy tee.
