In June, we showed the women at our partner agencies how to turn a worn t-shirt into a fun and fashionable market bag!

Using just a pair of scissors, we showed how to cut the sleeves and neck of the t-shirt to make handles for the bag. Then we showed how to cut the bottom of the t-shirt into strips that can be tied together to create a bag shape.

A participant from Center for Women in Transition said she learned “that simple household materials can be re-used into things we need or use everyday!”

Materials used: Worn T-Shirts

Skills taught: Re-purposing t-shirts, cutting and knot-tying
