Is this not such a novel idea? Very clever and so quick and easy to do too. I also love the ideas in Neffendi's comment (below) and I agree that there are umpteen other possibilities with this bag. I have a few old T-shirts waiting for a 2nd 'life' so I'm all set to start!

Your t-shirt bag might keep fruit from getting bruised, but it's big enough that produce could be crushed by its own weight. A smaller shirt might make a more practical bag for tender fruit. It's still a good idea, especially if you're careful what you put in it.

This is a great way to repurpose those old favorite tee shirts we all have, love and hate to through away. You could probably double up the tee shirts to get a stronger bag and some cool effects. You could even weave strips of other tee shirts through the holes to make a woven look bag. This would probably allow you to carry smaller sized produce, fruits, and objects. The possibilities are endless.
