Are you in the market for a new handbag? Preferably one that will cost you nothing, you can make yourself, and – most importantly – you can brag about to your friends because, look at you! you made your own handbag and it cost you nothing! Check out the video and step-by-step instructions below to learn how.
Step 1: Rummage through your closet for an old tank top. The larger the tank, the larger the handbag so – better yet – rummage through your boyfriend / husband / dad’s closet for one.
Step 2: Turn the tank top inside out.
Step 3: Gather the bottom of the shirt and tie it together with a rubber band.
Step 4: Flip the shirt inside out again.
Step 5: Proudly rock your homemade bag and gloat to your heart’s content.
What’s great about this is that you’re not cutting or sewing the tank top, so – unless you fill it with manure or uncapped markers – you can probably still wear it as a shirt!
Have fun playing around with different colors and patterned tanks, and let me know if you try this out for yourself! Bonus points if you Instagram some pics for me to see
ETA: The beautiful Liz also pointed out that this is a great option if you forget to pack a bag while traveling! #improveskills.
