The DIY T-Shirt Produce Bag

There’s no shortage of things to make out of an old T-shirt. But finally, we found something we would actually use. Ecouterre provides the inspiration for turning any old T-shirt into a reusable produce bag. It’s a simple idea that can be used every day at the farmer’s market or grocery store.

Simply find a T-shirt you no longer where. Cut off the sleeves, and zig-zag sew the bottom and sides shut to form a bag shape. Next take a pair of scissors and cut an opening near the bottom T-shirt hem to form a handle. Then cut small slits across the bag in staggering rows. Voila! A perfect sturdy bag that can carry a load of fruits and vegetables, all in under 20 minutes time.
