Has your favourite vest shrunk in the wash? Or stretched out of all proportions? Don’t bin it just yet – give it a second life with this super quick and ridiculously easy bag tutorial.
What you’ll need:
- Old vest made from t-shirt material
- Tape measure
For this tutorial, you can style your bag one of two ways – knots inside or knots outside. For knots inside, turn your top inside out before cutting.
What to do:
Lay your vest out on a flat surface, ensuring your front and back hems are matching.
At 1 inch intervals, cut up from the bottom 2.5 inches all the way along. Remember to also cut up the side seams.
Take the first tab on the top and the corresponding bottom tab. Knot right over left, then left over right, ensuring to pull tight.
Repeat all the way along.
And voila! One finished shopper bag, saving yourself 5p next time you hit the supermarket.
