Recycled T-Shirt Messenger Bag

Sew a messenger bag using a recycled t-shirt!  This style messenger bag is really easy to make.  My daughter was really excited to recycle her dad's Army t-shirt into soft messenger bag that she could use to hold her books and journal.

I used a quilting mat and rotary cutter to cut the front, back, 2 sides, and one bottom piece.   Using a sewing machine my daughter sewed the sides to the front and back and then the bottom piece.

To finish the messenger bag we added a ribbon hem around the top edge and a ribbon strap.

Check back tomorrow when I share how I recycled one of the t-shirt arm sleeves into a doggie vest.
