2 Bags in one *^_^*
I decided to turn an old boobtube into a bag. Being hello kitty, I didn't want to throw it away! I decided to turn it into something useful instead ^_^

I hand sewed my bag, but if you want yours made sooner, then you could use a sewing machine.

    Step 1

    Get all the bits n bobs you'll need together- in this case-

    Old boobtube
    Tea towel/ dish cloth

    Needle and thread
    Pins and ribbon...

    The bottom of my boobtube had a tie at the waist. I cut these off.

    Then I turned the boobtube inside out, pinned both of the right sides together, and sewed them. *Remove the pins after you have finished sewing* Leave this inside out, and place to one side.

    Next, i got my tea towel/ dish cloth, folded it in half and pinned the bottom and sides. Leave the top open (think about how a pillowcase looks!) then I sewed these two sides.

    After sewing, turn your tea towel/ dish cloth around, so that it is the correct way out.

    Place your boobtube/ old t-shirt inside your tea towel/ dish cloth- like this.

    Make sure that the bottom end of your boobtube/ t-shirt is touching the inside of the tea towel/ dish cloth. If your t-shirt is a bit too long (Like mine was in the above picture ^^ ) don't worry. Fold over the top edge of the t-shirt, to meet the top of your tea towel/ dish cloth. Pin into place and sew.

    Fold your bag in half, length ways, to work out where to place your handles. Use pins to help you. I cut a slit into my boobtube (as my handles are round, then I sewed the fabric over, to close up the slit.) Repeat this for the other handle.

    As everyone knows, Hello Kitty has a bow! I made a bow from some spotty Red and White ribbon, then sewed it onto Kitty. (Make sure you don't sew through both sides, now that your bag is reversible!)
