Our swimming club is changing uniforms this year, so something had to be done with the left over old style uniforms.
What else to do but upcycle them into bags of course!
I've had lots of fun making a few different sizes and styles.
We had 8 old shirts - some new, some second hand, and mostly the larger sizes that hadn't sold - which was great as it meant more fabric to work with!
I made large tote bags (from my tutorial here) lined with waterproof fabric.
Some simple drawstring bags (using my tutorial here)
Some zipped pouches from the sleeves. (tutorial here)
A large duffel bag (tutorial here)
And a few extra small bags too..
I'm very pleased with how they all turned out.
Hopefully they will sell now and raise a little cash for our club.
I've also got a few scraps left over - maybe later in the year I'll come up with something to make with those too!
Have you every made anything with old uniforms?
Which bags do you like best?
