All you need is an old t-shirt and a pair of scissors
No Sew – 10 Minute T-Shirt Tote
STEP 1: Cut sleeves off of shirt
STEP 2: Cut neck out of shirt
STEP 3: Cut slits and tie knots
If you don't want the knots to show you can tie them on the inside for a less fringed look.
STEP 4: Tie decorative handles
This step is optional but you can chose to cut small strips of extra fabric and tie small knots on the tops of the handles for a more decorative look
The tote is finished and ready to use!
