I recently saw a blog (?) where someone showed how to make a t-shirt into a grocery bag.  Cut off sleeves, use a plate for a template to reshape the neckline, stitch shut the bottom.  I bet a google search would bring it up---I'm sure it was not a craftster thread!

So, something like this  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8429539

They look really cool.  Great lunch bag too!

You could cut out the logos and applique them onto another shirt. You could put more than one on the same shirt.

Ummm you could pretty much applique them onto anything. Of course there's the quilt idea, and the bag thing sounds pretty cool.

Just a thought, but you could always take and cut out the special part of each shirt and either frame each of them separately, or create a very large poster size collage of them all. 

Or applique them onto a shirt or a bag, maybe?

it depends on how many you have because you could make a quilt and a travel t-skirt.

The t-shirt bag was from Martha Stewart:

They are quite sturdy and quick to make.
I saw somewhere someone had made undies out of an old t with the logo on the bum.

i plan on eventually using my Disney shirts for a quilt (we buy at least 2 per person on every trip, and we go multiple times a yr, we have ALOT of Disney shirts!)

i love it so much because: it wont ever go bad, or out of style, it will keep them preserved, AND you will be able to tell the story of ALL the shirts to anyone you want any time you want...its a fabric scrapbook...and it doesnt take alot of time either (the hard work was already done)

I don't know how big your designs are on the shirts or how many shirts you have but you could always make a quilted bag out of them too, fairly easily. This would work best if the designs are small-ish but you would just make a mini-quilt (or two) and then stitch up the sides, add a lining, and whatever you want for the handles. I mean, it could get fancier with pockets and zippers and such, but that's up to you.
