Upcycled T-shirt Bags
 
I am looking into maybe starting to do some upcycling. I've done a few of these bags in the past and given them to friends and they really liked them. Was wanting to get some feedback here as to how you all liked them. The one bag I have right now it a tote style with a pocket inside:

I have also made some that are the drawstring bags. I would also like to take old shirts and make them into cute girl's dresses or maybe women's halter tops. Any advice or feedback for me? THanks in advance!!

Awesome! How much would you be willing to pay for something like this? I also wanted to see how picky people are about straight sewing. I am not the most precise sewer ever, but none of my stuff looks horrible. Would it bother you if the stitching was not perfect?

I would work on your sewing skills if you're wanting to sell. ;) ESP if you're doing dresses and the like. I will say upcycle is really big right now, I think your purses are adorable. :)
Just keep at it if you love it.

Agreed. I'm picky with sewing since I could sew something if I didn't mine it being crooked. I buy others stuff because the workmanship is better. That being said I think the bags are adorable and kiss dresses would bee even cuter!

exactly that. It is cute, and while people do not expect perfection, they do expect professional looking.
