Sweatshirt to Market Tote


I had this sweatshirt loitering in my wardrobe. Too many tumbles in a too hot dryer had left it a little less slouchy on me than I would have liked! A few quick cuts and minimal sewing later...and I turned it into a tote bag that now houses my ever growing stash of T Shirt yarn! My current obsession!

It's sturdier than a standard t shirt bag and I found a way to  use the ribbing to reinforce the handles :)
