I'm Lindsey Ralston and this is how to turn a tank top into a tote. This is a really fun and simple project that you can use an old tank top and make it into a really fun shopping tote. Let's go ahead and get started. What I've got here is an old tank top that you want to make sure when you use these, that the front neckline and the back neckline are the same heights. It won't quite look as well or work as well if they are not. So once you have a tank top like that, go ahead and flip it inside out and you'll cut the tags off that are on the tank top. There's usually some on the top and then on the side of the tank top, often times. Once you are done cutting that out, you want to lay it flat kind of matching the sides together. You want to lay it flat so kind of, essentially the soon to be straps form a circle at the top, line that all up nice and even and then you can pin the bottom of the tank top or just simply make sure it's lined up and run it through, I usually run it through two times on my sewing machine and you want to run it through two times to give it that extra added strength, turn it right side out and enjoy your new tank top tote.
