This is one of the best projects out of the Martha headquarters I've seen in quite a while. It is a bag made from a t-shirt. All you need is a cotton tee, a pair of scissors, and the ability to sew a straight line. I was fortunate to find these two t-shirts for 33 cents a piece at the thrift store. The black one is my favorite - "Five a Day" (as in fruits and veggies) in Spanish. Go here for very easy directions, and you will be sporting a brand new bag (and extra room in your t-shirt drawer) the next time you go shopping.
In other news, it is in the seventies today and I have the chills. We are probably the only house in the neighborhood with smoke coming out of the chimney and a mommy piled with blankets. My week of repurposing may be repurposed into next week. I just broke it to George that I will be talking him through (in a barely audible whisper) the making of split pea soup and cornbread for dinner tonight. Poor guy would much rather make me a new cabinet, or probably even a t-shirt bag, than enter the unknown realm of my kitchen. Wish him luck. I'll see you when my fever goes down.
