Muscle T-Shirt Laundry Keeper

Muscle T-Shirt Laundry Keeper

From the Designer: "10 Minute Project! This project is super easy! A t-shirt clothes bag. I used an old t-shirt but you can use a colorful t-shirt that will keep things pretty. Don't forget that you could graffiti the t-shirt, add ruffles, or any embellishment to customize your new clothes bag. One other thing you could do is cut a piece of card board to line the bottom. I enjoyed making this tutorial and I sincerely hope you have fun making the Muscle T-Shirt Laundry Keeper. P.S. I wish that I had used a colorful t-shirt as the white came out so full in the pictures."

Muscle T-Shirt Laundry Keeper


  1. Pick an old​ t-shirt. I used a clean stained one for the purpose of dirty laundry.

  2. Cut out armholes close to seam all the way around.

  3. If using a "V" neck t-shirt, then just make the "V" longer for easier access when putting in laundry.

  4. If using a round collar, simply cut a medium to large "V" into the t-shirt from the rounded collar. The "V" should be long enough to pull out clothes inside but not so they will tumble​ out.

  5. Turn t-shirt inside out.

  6. Pin the bottom shut along the seam. (I did not so my seam was not perfect).

  7. Sew it along the seam all the way shut. It should look like a t-shirt bag.

  8. Pin the armholes shut.

  9. Sew all the way around shut.

  10. Turn t-shirt right sides out.

  11. Take the sides of the "V" and roll them under. Press hard to make them stay.

  12. Sew one side of the collar down making sure not to see through the back side of the shirt. Just make sure the back of the shirt is away from the front side when sewing or else you will not be able to place clothes in bag.

  13. Sew the other side of the collar down to the front of the t-shirt.

  14. If you want to customize this, then add embellishments such as ruffles to armpit area, draw, color, or use fabric paint. You could also just use a colorful t-shirt instead of the plain one I used.

  15. Have fun.
