Tank Top Tote

I regularly check my CraftGawker app on my iPad2.  I found a project last week that I could complete with no additional supplies.  I started with an Old Navy tank top that I no longer wear.

I first took the tank top and turned it inside out and layed it so that the side seams were lined up in the middle of the top.  The straps then make 2 perfect handles.  I cut off a bottom portion of the top (save it for later).  Next I used a zig-zag stitch to close the bottom of the top.  I turned it right side out and had a tote bag.

I used the excess fabric to make 2 small flowers and some extra ribbon to add a little something to the tote.

The tote bag would be perfect for a day at the beach or lake or filled with activities for a road trip or an over night stay with friends.  Don't worry if it gets stained or dirty, just throw it into the wash.

Have a sweet day!!
