Multipurpose Lightweight Backpack

One day my girlfriend and I got bored and was looking in our closet at those cute little bags you get from the apple store, and we thought hmm that looks like fun. So we grabbed some old shirts from a thrift store, cost us about 2 dollars for 4 shirts. And we sewed this up together. It is super light but the strength of the two shirts sewed together gives it great carrying capacity and stretching without worrying about your things falling out. Please let me know if you like it :) And if you’d like a guide or how to or something.

Material Notes

2 Old Shirts (Complimentary Colors if possible)

    This is a great way to re-use those t-shirts that aren’t wearable, but have such awesome designs that you can’t bare to throw them out.

    That’s great! I can’t wait to try one with my son’s old shirts.
