Wow, that's uber cool.
It looks really comfy.
I want to do something like that for my son when he outgrows his baby clothes.
Thanks--it is! haha c( :
And you totally should! That would be an awesome piece
I love this!! I've been wanting to do a T-shirt quilt but for some reason was worried about the comfort factor, but he looks really comfy and snuggly. (My DH has been a stagehand for 12 years and until recent years EVERY band gave you a T-shirt after the show loaded out) Anyway I love how yours is kind of a cazy quilt design and making it as a duvet cover is brilliant!
And you totally should!! I don't know about the comfort factor for when it's not wrapped around the duvet, but it's still super soft, so I'm sure it wouldn't be too terrible....just much thinner. lol
I think overall it works better as a duvet cover, at least for the winter months.
Nice job! I have never seen a T-Shirt quilt before - thought I was the only person who wanted to do one. Hope to finally 'get started' on the one for my daughter. I purposely saved a huge assortment of t-shirts from my daughters wardrobe since she was less than a year old through High School - she is 32 now and the couple of large bins contain the ones that I have previously cut down and those waiting to be cut. Thanks for giving me a nudge! ...Again great job and nice labor of love.
P.S. It's always been the piecing together of all the odd sized cropped pieces due to sizes of t-shirts that concerned me and allowed me to delay the process. I wasn't going to quite lay out as you have done butting/sewing each piece together - but really like what you have done. How did you do the seams - if you don't mind me asking - and how long did it take you?
P.P.S. No need to answer - just spent sometime on internet and now have a better idea of type of layout I need. Thanks again!
Thank you, lol!
Whenever you finish the quilt, definitely post it on Craftster--from what you've described, it sounds like it would be an amazing piece!
really great work! I have made a few of these myself and piecing them was a nightmare, but they always worked out! And they are such a great memory piece!
Really nice job!
And yeah, at times it was a pain (especially because I've always been the kind of person to just kind of wing it...I hate measuring, haha), but overall, I'm super happy with how it turned out.
this is exactly what my husband has asked me to do with all his old Tshirts. I am too intimidated tho.
You should definitely try it--it's not too difficult, just really time consuming. T-shirts are pretty forgiving though--if you mess proportions up, they'll usually stretch to fit, and then on top of that, you can use scraps to fill in blank spaces (like I did).
