I got this shirt for 99 cents at Family Thrift. It's a child's large
and I thought it would make a good throw pillow, maybe for the boy's room.
But then I thought it would make a good bag for library books, although being a child's shirt it isn't super roomy. Plus if I change my mind later I can still make a little throw pillow out of it. I sewed a French seam in the bottom of the shirt, which is just a fancy way of saying that I sewed the bottom together while the shirt was still right side out. This assures that you don't have unfinished edges after you sew it together. Then I sewed the bottom seam right sides together. Since t-shirt fabric doesn't fray all you have to do is cut off the collar and sleeves to make a bag opening.
What do you think?
