Making a Purse from T-shirts

I have some tank tops and t-shirts that I can no longer wear but I like the designs on them and would like to keep them. I have thought of turning them into purses, but don't know how. Any ideas? Thanks.

there is a GREAT website that can show you numerous things to do with those t-shirts, and tons of other crafts.
www.craftster.org
under the clothing section, there's a forum for purses and wallets, a section for "reconstructed" clothing, etc.

I have made purses out of tank tops before, and it is really easy. For a tank top all you have to do is turn the tank top inside out and sew the bottom edges together and then the straps can be the handles. As for t-shirts, you would want to do the same but also sew up the arm holes. You would want to fashion a strap of some sort out of ribbon or something.

Also throw pillows, framed art and use as appliques on other clothing items.

You could put them over the front seats in your car. I've seen people do this before, instead of investing in seatcovers.
