Easy tote bag, made with t-shirt yarn.
This can be as big or as small as you want to make it. And what ever colors you chose. I used t-shirts I bought for a quarter at a local thrift shop and 2 handles from an old handbag. You can line it or not, it's all up to your discretion and creativity.
My example here is just playing with what I had on hand.
T-shirts are used as yarn. I cut off the hem and then below the arms. Then cut into strips and pull tight to make the yarn. There are "how to" examples of this on this website.
Depending on the size you want your bag to me - chain stitch to that width - then chain 3 more.
in the 4th chain stitch - double crotchet and continue until the end of the row.
Chain 3 - and begin the next row of double crotchet. This continues until you have a rectangle that when folded in half is the size of the bag you want to make.
If you chose to line the bag - now is the perfect time. Just hand stitch in a lining of your choice - perhaps a piece of t-shirt, that's what I used.
Using more t-shirt yarn - stitch sides together using single crotchet.
Add handles by tying on the outside of the bad with a piece or 2 of t-shirt yarn.
You can also make handle out of the t-shirt yarn.
Ta-da - your bag is complete.
