A. The other day I noticed how out of control my grocery bags have gotten without me even noticing. They used to live between the wall and the dryer in the laundry room. Not really a good system.
B. I came across a husband’s shirt with an unfortunate sweat stain around the neck. Gross. But the rest of the shirt is perfect, so how to reuse it???
C. Plastic grocery bag holder made from husband’s old shirt.
I love myself.
- a woven shirt (long or short sleeved)
- standard sewing supplies
Step 1 With the shirt buttoned, lay it out flat on the table.
Step 2 Cut off the sleeves so you have a rectangle. You can cut off some of the bottom if you want it to be shorter.
Step 3 Cut off the collar, right above a seam so you don’t have to finish the edge.
Step 4 Sew the front of the shirt closed. A zipper foot is handy on this step.
Step 5 With right sides together, sew around the shirt to enclose all the sides leaving the only opening at the neck.
Step 6 Stuff with plastic grocery bags and hang from that little loop on the back of most men’s shirts.
My laundry room is more organized and I have found a practical use for that old shirt. It’s been a good day.
