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.
