How to Turn Old Sheets into Shopping Totescomments (37) April 25th, 2012
I hate plastic shopping bags. I try my best not to use them, so I have a slew of reusable bags in my house and car. The ones you find in the store are fine in a pinch, but the ones I make myself are bigger, sturdier, and just more fun. Here I've used a pair of old top sheets to make some fun bags sure to be used over and over.
Wanna make some, too? Here's what you'll need:
- Sheets (I used two twin top sheets, which yielded four shopping totes)
- Large sheet of paper (I used leftover Christmas wrap, but you can piece together something or use brown craft paper)
- Paper scissors
- Fabric scissors
- Measuring tools (I used a 24-inch by 6-inch quilting grid to measure the straps)
- Rotary cutter and mat
- Sewing machine
- Iron and ironing board
