Our First Tutorial...sort of

I decided to do our first tutorial on here as something I just wanted to try. I found this tutorial for a recycled t-shirt bag based on the design of plastic grape bags. I wanted to try it with a thin sweater, so I decided to take pictures of the whole process and post them on here. And I did. Except then the pictures got lost in cyberspace. They weren’t on my camera or computer...I don’t know where they went, but I can’t find them.

Anyways, here’s a link to the t-shirt version tutorial, and a picture (retaken later) of the finished product of the bag I made.

The only differences between doing this project with a t-shirt versus a sweater, is that if your sweater buttons up the front, you have to sew the button part closed. I also added a little fold over closure on the top to further make use of the buttons.

I think I cut the slits too large and I might play around with doing loose zigzag over them to close it up more. I also could’ve left the collar on, it just would’ve made the opening a little smaller.

    Too bad your pics got lost in cyberspace, that must have been a lot of work making them.
