Things to Make Thursday...Tank Top Beach Bag

I got this great idea from a website called What a great way to recycle!

Tank Top Beach Bag

Recycle an old tank top into a beach bag. All you need is some fabric glue and decorative trim.

You need:

Tank Top
Rick Rack or Other Trim
1 Yard of Cord
Fabric Glue
Small Scissors
Safety Pin

Using a small, pointed scissors, open up about 1" of the hem of the tank top. Attach safety pin to the end of the cord and push the pin with the cord through the opening into the hem. Work the pin and cord around the entire bottom until you reach the hem opening again. You should have both ends of the cord sticking out of the hem opening. Remove safety pin.

Pull cord end gathering up the bottom of the tank top as tight as possible. Tie ends together, double knotting. Trim ends. Push the knot up inside the hem. Glue a large appliqué over the opening on the bottom on the bag. Decorate edges with rick rack and appliqués.
