Each GumHearts Appliquéd T-shirt is unique, come to get one tomorrow at Corona Plaza.

50 GumHearts Appliquéd T-shirts will be available for tomorrow at Corona Plaza, and another 50 for next Saturday at Diversity Plaza, Jackson Heights, as a part of Queens Art Intervention 2016 by RPGA Studio. http://www.regoparkgreenalliance.org 

By cutting the T-shirts with scissors and tying them together each participant will create own tote bag to take home.  Open to public and free to participate. All T-shirts were used/unused and donated for this project.

No Sew Tote Bag

So, how do we turn t-shirts into Tote bag without sewing?  Cut and Tie, simple.

Get a T-shirt.

Cut off sleeves. Cut around neck, so opening is wide enough as a bag.

Tie 2 pieces together first, then tie different pair to make stronger. Slits could be much longer. If you turn T-shirts inside out and tie, the slits would stay inside the bag and invisible. Be creative and have fun.

Back from Japan.

Experienced one medium earthquake in Fukushima and some typhoon during visit. High humid dose not allow laundry dry. Saw a lot more foreigners ever in Tokyo, traveling and working. People there follow traffic lights and that irritated me. Young people who works at stores talk like robot, so do not have to think?  Found people seek lower priced food, drink probably needed for economical situation there, that I have always done anyway. I enjoyed a cup of freshly brewed coffee with 100yen, about $1, at  Seven Eleven instead of at a cafe for $300-500 yen. Here are some snapshots.
