In case you didn't know, I am a crazed OKC Thunder fan.  When I say crazed, I mean that I have enough Thunder shirts to wear for 2 weeks straight without doing laundry.  I have a "jersey" shirt for each player in the starting lineup (minus Sefolosha) and plus Harden and Collison.  I have made a Thunder wreath for my door,  my dog has a Thunder tag with his info on it, we have season tickets, and I have watched every single game of this season (unfortunately I didn't get to attend every home game because we live 2 hours away).  I have even considered checking into what it would cost to get married on the court before a game! I love the OKC Thunder!

I made this bag out of a T-shirt yesterday. I think I turned out really well. I got a few compliments on it at the game last night. I love when people compliment you on something and you get to say, "THANKS! I made it!". ( I have a funny story about "Thanks, I made it" but I'll tell it in a separate post)

I was worried about working with a cut up tee but I interfaced it as soon as I finished cutting it and I didn't have any problems with it rolling up.  I also used a light sew-in interfacing just to make it a little sturdier and it has a solid cotton lining with an interior pocket too. I will be making another one today!

Here is a picture of my thunder wreath that I made (it took me TWO DAYS!)  I don't know if you've ever made a yarn wreath, but it SUCKS!  I will never make one again.  Those felt flowers took forever too because every petal had to be hand sewn. BLAH!  I hate hand stitching!  It looks cute though!
