The Patchwork Bear: Custom T-shirt Tote + Promo Codes!

The Patchwork Bear is known for taking precious baby clothes and transforming them into a sweet stuff bears. They have now branched out into making totes with your t-shirt and I was actually surprised at how my bag turned out when it arrived for review. The process is simple: place your order on The Patchwork Bear site, mail in your shirt(s) and then wait for it to return to you in several weeks. 

I chose a shirt Hubs bought me a long time ago when he was working at Lucky. It's a neat men's shirt but size small. I don't wear it often but it never made it into the donate pile so I thought it would be perfect to have it resurrected. One adult sized t-shirt works best but they can also combine 2-4 kid sized shirts as well. You can choose black or natural canvas for the bottom and handles. The Patchwork Bear will use coordinating fabric for the inside of the bag.

I placed my shirt and order form inside the bag and off it went to be made. I waited several weeks and a shipping notification came and the bag arrived at my home. I didn't expect such a fabulous bag! It doesn't look like it was made from my shirt but rather a custom designer tote bag. I love that I chose to get it personalized with my last name in embroidery.

I've been carrying my new tote since it arrived and am pretty stoked at how durable it is. It can carry all my junk as well as magazines, food, drinks, etc. I like the extra pocket on the outside but would also have liked it if there was a zippered pocket on the inside. Perhaps I've been carrying too many diaper bags :) I have been asked several times about my new tote and people are surprised to learn that it is made from my t-shirt! I think my co-worker is going to order one :)
