Hello lovely OCPians,
I bring a very simple DIY to you today. It is basically how to turn your t-shirt into a bag or rather how to make a fringe hobo bag from a t-shirt; whichever you prefer. The shirt used in this DIY is one which I’ve been wearing for so long and finally abandoned, plus I love the caption on it so I decided to use it for this tutorial. We are not sewing in this tutorial(no sew DIY/tutorial). Let’s proceed. 

This is a 15minute DIY                            
What you’ll need                                      

  • ·         A T-shirt

  • ·         Scissor

  • ·         Chalk or Anything to mark with

  • ·         Ruler (maybe, but if u got steady hands to draw straight lines, then you are good)

Here Are The Steps

  • ·         Arrange the shirt on a flat surface, making sure there are no wrinkles on it. Cut out the sleeves of the shirt neatly. If the shirt you are using doesn’t have sleeves, it’s even better and has saved you up to 1 minute of the DIY

  • ·         Cut off the seam at the bottom of the shirt, then fold your shirt into two as shown above.

  • ·         Move to top of the shirt and use a chalk or whatever you are using to mark, mark a deep neck line as shown and then cut it out neatly. That(above) is what it should look like when you open up the shirt.

  • ·         Move to the bottom of the shirt and mark three and half inches (3.5”) in length from bottom then draw a horizontal line and one inch (1”) across the shirt continuously drawing vertical lines with the aid of a ruler, but as I said if you can do this without a ruler, please proceed.  But I used a ruler while doing this DIY.

  • ·         Now this is how we get the fringe. Cut the vertical lines from bottom but do not cut beyond that horizontal line drawn. When done cutting, tie the fringe behind and the ones in front of the shirt together TWICE (2X). Am emphasizing on TWICE (2X) because if you tie it once, my dear, it would lose oo and all your items in the bag would fall off; imagine this happening in public, it would be a disaster lol.

  • ·         Finally take a long piece of material either from the neck line or the bottom of the shirt which you cut out and tie the shoulder of the t-shirt (now bag handle) making sure your knot is firm.
