T-Shirt Tote Bag
- How it works
We are currently CLOSED for new bag orders. CLICK HERE to be notified the next time we open up for new orders.
We transform YOUR favorite t-shirt into a durable and versatile TOTE BAG. Great for books, crafts, groceries and day trips, this will be your favorite go-to bag.
We reinforce your t-shirt with stabilizing fabric. Bottom is made from durable black or natural cotton canvas. Inside fabric will be made from coordinating cotton fabric- or send a second shirt for the inside!
Other features: outside pocket on reverse side of tote, durable 1-inch cotton straps. Finished tote measures approximately 18"Wx 13"H x 4"D. Actual size will depend on size of your t-shirt. It takes approximately 2-4 weeks to complete your tote bag after we receive your shirt.
**Please note: this is a custom order. Final width of the bag depends on your t-shirt size. We will make it as close to 18 inches wide as possible. Height is 13; Depth is 4". One or two adult sized t-shirt work best, but we can combine 3-4 child sized shirts too!
