A few days ago, I attempted to make a t-shirt bag. Having not used a sewing machine since sixth grade, I realized that I was sorely out of practice (the massive amounts of thread in the trash can and the slightly-bent sewing needle can attest to that). Nevertheless, I ended up with a usable tote. And the Phantom mask on the front (which glows in the dark!) is obviously an epic win. I bought the shirt after the first time I saw The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway for the first time. Unfortunately, the “small” was large even when I was in high school, and now I could probably tie it off as a minidress.
The only alteration I made to the finished project was to create a bottom in the bag by flipping it inside out and sewing along the sides at a right angle.
