So this project was a christmas present for my boyfriend of 3 years...
I went to Value Village and found the funniest t-shirts I could find, and I cut them up into squares. I also cut right through both layers of the t-shirt, so I got a blank sqare that I could paint on/iron things on... I sewed them all togehter, and handstictched them on to a quilt, and stitched in between the corners of every t-shirt...it was definetley hard to do, but it was worth it, he sleeps with it every night!! It's got salad fingers...jamaican t-shrits (spider-mon and poke-mon ahha!) the molsen canadian poem, x-men, lyrics...inside jokes...retarded animal babies haha...and like I said a couple things that I ironed on. There is a giant grad photo he and all my friends took, we all held up "dirty little secrets"...I was so glad my mom helped me stitch it to the quilt, that thing took SOOOO long!

I sewed all the t-shirts together with the sewing machine easily, but It didn't work sewing it directly on to the quilt with the machine, so I had to hand stitch it on to the quilt.

Oh, so cool!
I keep wanting to do something with all of my son's old t-shirts. I need to just let the inspiration lead to perspiration, or whatever, you know what I mean. Just do it!  Smiley

I tried to do this with some of my husband's t-shirts.  But it turned out horrible!  Yours great.  Good job!

I like that. I've always wanted a tee shirt blanket but I don't know if I'd have the patience to sew it together. =/

Yay! I'm doing a t-shirt quilt of my boyfriends old shirts but it is going to be somewhat of a crazy quilt as all of the squares I've cut out are different sizes. I always love love love to see these finished, it just makes me that much more excited about finishing mine!! Fantastic job!
