Beautiful Laura from CanCanDancer made this cute backpack from an old t-shirt. So, if you have a favorite t- shirt that you cannot wear anymore, but you’d like to still use it, you can turn it into a backpack.
You will need:
– a t-shirt;
– a piece of fabric;
– needle and thread;
– sewing machine.
Directions: Start by cutting the upper side of the t-shirt, from armpit to armpit to use only the bottom part. Then, cut the clothesline cord into half. On the upper part of the backpack, you need to make a hem by sewing the edges together after you bend them, or by adding a piece of fabric that already has a hem. If you can utilize the bottom part of the t- shirt for the upper part of the backpack, it will be easy for you to use the hem of the t-shirt. Continue by stitching the two parts, you sew the bottom of the backpack and insert the 2 cords into the hems with the help of a big safety pin. Now, arrange the cords, so that the four tips meet together, 2 on each side, at the bottom of the backpack and sew the margins with the cords tips in! Enjoy!
