This is the last one in the "Kids Can Make It" series, folks! I had a lot of fun thinking these up and executing them with my daughter. There were some fails, yes, sir, there was! But, we had a lot of laughs and a lot of fun failing!
In three days we'll be back to our "normal" postings. Normal is relative.
Today we are making. . . . (wait for it. . . )
You start with a t-shirt or some other knit clothing. Knits don't unravel like cottons, so a knit is a good choice. We used an old sundress.
Cut a fringe around the entire bag. I cut my strips about 1 3/4 inches long. I wanted extra room to knot. That weird square that's in the corner? Cut that out and throw it away.
Tie the fringe together all the way around. You're tying the top of the bag to the bottom of the bag.
Tie the strap under the first few knots on each side. Knot it tight and trim the end.
The fun thing about this bag is that you can make it any size, depending on the garment you are cutting up! It would be fun to do this with a logo t-shirt and to use the bag for groceries or produce when you are shopping. Possibilities are endless!
