Up cycle shirt into travel bag


I took the back of a shirt retired from use and a matching piece of old sheeting to create a simple lined bag.

I trimmed each material into a rectangle and folded it in half to get the profile of the bag.

Before assembly I cut the pocket from the shirt and sewed it centrally on the front half of the outer and tacked ribbon at the top outer back and front.

I cut squares from the bottom corners on both outer and lining for boxing, and then sewed round the sides and bottom of both outer and lining (leaving a turning gap of four inches at the bottom of the lining).

I boxed the corners then put the outer inside the lining, pinned the tops and sewed the tops before turning and top stitching to tidy the top line.

this makes a great travel bag for free!
