CIG Earth Day Blog Hop… Day 4

Hello Hello!!

Today is the last day of the CIG Earth Day Blog Hop.  If you just ended up here, make sure you go back to the beginning of the hop at Create It Green

Today I have a craft non-scrapbook related.  I read about this years ago and with the kick of recycled bags, I thought it was the perfect idea for Earth Day.  I am going to show you how to make your own bags to bring to the grocery store.  All you need is a T-SHIRT and sewing machine. 

STEP 1: Cut off the sleeves… it is best to keep the the seam to reinforce the bag


STEP 2:  Cut the top out… I use a plate as a guide.

IMG_9213 STEP 4: You’re DONE!!!… Turn it right side out and you have a new bag to take to the store.
