4. Spray scrunched T-shirt with dye until T-shirt surface is covered. Let set 6-8 hours or overnight.
5. Wash and dry T-shirt according to package instructions.
6. Lay shirt flat on clean work surface. Cut from the bottom of a sleeve toward the neck, cutting in a half circle to the bottom of the other sleeve, to form the top of the bag handle. Cut a “U" inside the handle portion and back across to complete the handle.
