T-Shirts to Bags: a Simple, Fun Project

HatTip to Earth Creations, eco-american clothing manufacturer, where I saw this idea:
Do you have a favorite t-shirt that cannot be worn anymore? Keep its life going and help the planet by converting it to a bag. Here is how to do it:
1. Cut off the sleeves
2. Cut out the neckline
3. Sew up the bottom Use your tee shirt bag instead of plastic and paper!
[I imagine it would be stronger if you took two t-shirts and did this. Turn them inside out, cut the sleeves off and sew the straps on the to strengthen them. Then turn it right-side out and top stitch the bottom hem.]
How about some Obama-Bags?

Or you put a stronger fabric on the backside to have a strong bag;-)
