Shirt Sleeve Bag Tutorial


Repurpose an old men’s short sleeve button down into this fun bag! You’ll find the tutorial over at Gwenny Penny.


  • short sleeve men’s extra-large button down shirt
  • lining fabric – about 1/2 yd, depending on the size of your sleeves (You could use the back of the shirt, but she used a contrasting fabric to make the tutorial pictures easier to understand.)
  • fusible fleece – about 3/4 yd, depending on the size of your sleeves
  • wooden bag handles (she used 6″ bamboo D-shaped handles)
  • coordinating thread
  • rotary cutter or scissors
  • Your sewing stuff
