My blanket - pic heavy

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I told hubby that it would only take a couple of weeks. Well - it did, just a couple of weeks spread out over most of the year. I wanted to preserve my favorite t-shirts that were no longer wearable. My hubby added some of his to the mix and I had a project. The trouble is that I had not really sewn since jr high - and never anything this big. Marcie helped with the whole thing.

Love it! Are you going to leave it "as is" or do some quilting or tying as well?
This is a great project for all those t'shirts all of us seem to accumulate. (I think the reproduce when no one's looking)

That is so completely AWESOME!!! Can I borrow your idea? Im thinking of throw pillows myself (I dont think I have enough cool t-shirts I would put on a blanket!).
Great job!

It is more of an applique sort of blanket. It is finished and reversible with a back side that is a nice blue and white patterend fabric. It also has a layer of batting on the inside.

I saved the little designs that are on the sleeves and I am planning on making pillows in the future.

That looks awesome! Great job for not having sewn since Jr. High. I'm so with you on the "few weeks" thing too. I started a baby blanket for my friend's son... he's 18 months old now! Mind you I started it while she was still pregnant too. Oops, looks like I might be able to finish it for myself now.

That turned out awesome! Marcie looked like she was of great help too in holding the fabric so it didn't move

i can see Marcie was a fabulous helper!

i need to make one of those - i have LOADS of tees that are waaaaaay too big for me from shows i did back when i was still MO... i wear them to do housework, mow the lawn, paint scenery, dye hair, etc. but this would be a great way to use them!

I'm impressed, great job!!!! I did something like this with some shirts that belonged to a good friend of mine's dad, when he passed away, made a lap quilt for each of his kidsand his wife with them.

Ohmigosh!!! What a fantastic idea! I've got tons of racing t-shirts - this would be a perfect thing to do with them!! (I don't have a sewing machine, though, so never mind. )

Isn't it nice that our kitties help?

That blanket looks so awesome! I love the idea of using old t-shirts too...I would never think of something so simple as that

Good work!
