Make It : Bags for Earth Day

Posted by

Today is the 40th Anniversary of Earth day!  Here in the Crafts Dept, we love bringing new life to old scraps and forgotten objects. Here are two of my favorite recycled projects.

Make these two bags using old t-shirts or pillowcases.  Bring your new/recycled bag  with you while you run errands and avoid wasting disposable plastic bags.  You can't get much greener than that.

If you don't have a spare pillowcase, grab an old t-shirt and make this bag.
