Shopping bags/purses made of tank tops. Check it:
They still look like shirts...but they're totally functional as bags.
I posted some earlier attempts at reusable sandwich bags, and while they worked, they didn't hold up well with repeated washings. Even though I air-dried, there was some fabric shrinkage, and the mylar liners became wrinkly crinkly. The bags are still totally functional, they just aren't as pretty as they once were.
This is the new version:
A sandwich wrap
It's a place mat.
I love these. I have a bunch of old sheets and things to repurpose into bags, and I have vinyl lining to make clean-up easier. And these are washable in the laundry, rather than top shelf of the dish washer.
I successfully sewed Velcro for the first time ever...that's pretty rad. And I'm loving the idea of keeping germs off my PBJ and crumbs outta my keyboard.
I'm thinking of demolishing old hoodies into new and amazing things...beware...it has started.
