T-Shirt Grocery Bags

This was not my original idea. It's probably on every DIY, crafting, and green site on the Internet. It is a very good idea, and incredibly easy. This is a perfect beginner's project, or just a good way to fill a few free minutes. (I'm assuming; I don't actually have any of those, so...)
I don't think I've ever used these without getting compliments on them. They're very durable, and perfect for milk. And, if you use a tank top, you may not have any cutting to do at all--hem the bottom and square off the corners if you wish.
Oh, and another thing--these are excellent for laundry! When we go on trips, dirty laundry goes in a big one of these bags, and it all gets washed when we get home. And I gathered up the front and back of what used to be the neck with elastic so that it stays closed a little, making things less apt to fall out. I'm thinking that these would be perfect for people who live in dorms, or who use laundry mats.
I've got 3 of these, but this is the only one that isn't in the laundry right now. When they are clean, I'll add more pictures. :)

What a neat and cheap project!!! I know everyone can use these. I always have tons of t-shirts...great idea. The last t-shirt idea I had was to make a quilt out of them with the help of my grandma. :)
