Did I mention it's wonky? I started this blanket a long while back. Collected the tee shirts from my closet, the hubs' closet, and my favorite thrift store. Ironed on the interfacing, cut out the rectangles, figured out the layout, and then sewed up four columns of tee shirts. It was then that I realized that my lack of experience, patience, and accurate measuring and cutting had come back to bite me on my craftin' ass. The tee shirts did not even come close to lining up right, and the top of the blanket did this not-so-awesome tapering thing by the time it got down to the bottom.
Hmph. So I stuffed it behind my couch and there it sat, and haunted me, for a couple months. Then we got a new couch (hooray! as the old couch was the most hideous thing in the entire universe) which meant that I had to figure out a new place for all of the crap I'd stashed back there, including the Wonk. One day it came to me: who cares what it looks like--just start sewing that em effer! See what happens! So I did! And here's what happened--
The Wonk in its entirety:
Glad to finally have a use for my "Barbie is a Slut" tee shirt, purchased a gazillion years ago during a semester in London. Now that I'm in my mid-30s and a teacher, probably not the most appropriate thing to be sporting around town.
And for the back, I used a Tommy Hillfiger sheet ($4 for the set, suhweeeeet!):
Long live The Wonk!
