It was easy! I am going to make some more before I take old clothes to Good Will.

I make a similar bag, but I have a sewing machine and find it to be very simple to sew the bottom seam. ThenI stitch across the corners to reinforce them. Simple and useful.

That's really neat! I can see this as useful in the classroom, too. Daily Five book bags perhaps.

My daughter learned how to make those at a Girl Scout meeting. She loves them, but never actually uses them

good idea. . . thanks for sharing. My mom actually removed my old flannel sheets from the Good Will bag and told me to use them for the back of my future quilts.

Cute! I just showed my daughter and she thought of a shirt she loves that she might use to make a bag like this.

at the shoulders to gather each of them up and make it look a little less like a shirt. Now you can't see the shoulder seams.

What a cute idea. I'm not crafty at all but I think I could do this with DGD.

Love this idea! I'm not too crafty but may give this a whirl
I thought the tutorial was pretty clear cut.

I love the idea! I am currently working with a third grade teacher that doesn’t want to use book boxes for independent reading . Maybe she and I can have her kids bring in their own T shirt to make a book bag! It looks like something third graders could do. I believe you (1956BD) taught third grade— what do you think?

That should work as long as the students already know how to tie their shoes. If they do not know how to tie shoes that will have difficulty. They will work for book storage if the shirt is big enough.
