Almost No-Sew Non Couture Shopping Bag

I wanted one more shopping bag for the car but I didn't want to go to the trouble I went to with the last bag I made so I went almost no-sew on this one.

It's functional but definitely not couture! 

To make your very own Non Couture shopping bag you need a t-shirt.

Cut off your sleeves on the outside of the seam.  This makes your handles stronger and less stretchy.

Smooth your neckline and find something round.  You can use a dinner plate or a bowl.

Put it over your neckline and trace.


Flip it inside out and sew along the bottom. 
Add your gussets if you want. . . we all know how much I like gussets!
Flip it right side out and it's ready to use!

If I do it again:

I will cut it a little bit smoother around the arms.  It's jaggety on this one and it looks very half-hearted.
