Your Cart is Empty

We all have those old tee's we just can't seem to let go of and all too often they end up in landfills. But they don't have to.

In recent years, textile waste has continued to grow. An excess of 15 billion tons of textile waste surfaces each year in the United States, and more than ¾  of that is sent to landfills to wither away. Not only does this excess add to the landfill issue, but it also forces us to consume even more energy and resources to replace the discarded garments.

An alternative to throwing away any unwanted clothes, in addition to donating, is to upcycle! Follow this quick and simple t-shirt tote guide for a stylish way to combat the waste.

What You’ll Need

  • An old t-shirt
  • A pair of scissors

Step One

Fold your t-shirt in half. Make sure to align the shoulder seams for a symmetrical cut.



Step Two

About an inch from the arm seam, cut off the sleeves.



Step Three

Unfold the t-shirt and cut the collar off.

Step Four

Cut the side seams starting from the bottom of the t-shirt to your desired bag depth.


Step FIve

Flip your t-shirt inside out and cut tassels (about 1in thick) from the bottom of the t-shirt to your desired bag depth. Remember to cut both the front and the back of the t-shirt at the same time!


Step Six

Tie adjacent tassels together. Make sure you double knot!

Step Seven

Flip your t-shirt right-side out and admire your work!
