I'd love to do this with my kids old cothes, but I have a couple questions..
Do you just cut them into a square shape (removing the arms and bottom etc?) ? Do you use reguar sutffing or that sheet batting stuff? Is it a whole shirt or just the important part (front or back?)? Did you pin it to the sheet then sew it all or do it in parts?
Wow...maybe it would have been more efficient to ask for a tute!
That's sooo nice and a great way to remember all the fun stuff you did and liked growing up. I have this AWFUL Billy Ray Cyrus shirt that I'd have to use if I made one for me!
I just cut the t shirts into a nice 13x13 square so the design remained, removing the sleeves and neck (the important part as you put it), and neck line. i used batting for the inside.
Sew all the tshirts together first, then lay down your backing, put the batting on top of that followed by the t shirt part. Pin it all together and sew sew sew. I would also reccomend using fusible interfacing on the back of the shirts before you sew it to the backing since jersy knit tends to change shape whenever it feels like it.
I hope that was clear, and sorry it took so long to reply, i didnt think my tshirt quilt would get that many comments.
Thanks for all the nice words!
