      This would be cute turned into a dress. Just add a gathered skirt to it in a solid color to match.

      I'd stitch the ends of the seams of the shoulders so they don't unravel.

      And if I were to do this, I'd sew a zipper to the cut end of the sleeve, sew the sleeve end shut, then sew it inside the bag, for 2 separate internal storage bags.

      I only have a couple dozen tie-dyes, though, so not sure if I can spare any.

      I've been doing this recently with my husband's old t-shirts (to use as reusable shopping bags). One tip I could add is to box the bottom corners of the shirt after you sew. Seems to give me a lot more room in them! Plus, I like the look it gives them. :)

      P.s.- awesome job on the tie dying! It looks so great!!

      Love your t shirt bag. I live in Tasmania, Australia & have never seen dyes such as these. Can you please tell me a web shop where I may purchase some please? Thanks Victoria

      I've been trying my hand at Tie Dying with Tulip and having so much fun. These bags are adorable.I also saw a no-sew version where you make fringes on the bottom of the shirt which you then tie together. I think I may be making a few of both! Thanks so much for the idea.
