26  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re:t-shirt quilt? on: March 10, 2004 07:03:28 PM
I HAVE!! <<Raises hand>>

look at this thread...
http://www.craftster.org/yabbse/index.php?board=3;action=display;threadid=3151

I cut out the designs from the shirts, (I used the backs of some) and used fusible interfacing to keep them from stretching...lots of fusible interfacing, but then I had lots of shirts.  I've seen where people just cut out generic squares, and put strips between each square, but that wasn't my style, so I did A LOT of piecing, and rearranging and filling in with old pj pants.  I sewed most of it by hand (all the shirts and the denim to the sides...)  It took about 2 weeks of non-stop sewing! Originally I was gonna do it all one-sided, but it would have been WAY TOO BIG...about king-size.  But the way I did it, it covers the entire top of my full size bed...

for the stretchiness . . . i've seen elastic thread for hand-sewing.  i wonder if you can buy stretchy thread for machines?  then it wouldn't matter which stitch you used.  
my machine has a stretch stitch, but stretch thread would make life easier.

I read this a while ago and thought hmm...I've got stretchy thread somewhere...well I just found it and the back of the package says that you can use it in the machine, wind it around the bobbin and use regular thread on top!!  WOOHOO!!

Thanks everyone!!  I did crochet it with lion brand polar spun yarn...I was a little unsure about it at first, and my sis didn't like it, so it almost didn't happen that way...but I'm GLAD it did!! I Love it!  It wasn't hard at all, I just cut a rectangle, then 'finished' the edges that would be the top of the bag, sew up the sides, then sew the corners to help it stand up, put the snap, crochet the strap, sew it to the zipper then sew it onto the bag...it took a couple of hours because it was hand sewn, and I was REALLY tired while I was crocheting, but it's TOTALLY worth it!!
