How to make a tied fabric bag


T-shirt yarn bags or purses can be made in multiple ways. We can crochet them with 2 needles, with a loom or with a flexible mesh structure where segments of fabric strips are tied. Nothing is simpler and the result -as we see in this recyclart image- is a beautiful t-shirt yarn bag with fringes, with a pleasant texture.
