I got a merino comforter from my sister. I've made a couple of covers for it when it belonged to her. (I'm the one with the kids so she thought I would appreciate and use it- she's right!)
I've got all the tee shirts from high school. Marching band, plays, etc.
Put them together and what do you get- a tee shirt duvet! (a duvet is a cover that goes over a comforter so you don't have to wash a big heavy blanket- just the cover!)

Looking at it, I remember that I also used some tees from early college.
I used a microfiber sheet as the back side- I really should have sprung the extra two bucks and gotten the jersey sheet! I used my snap press to add about 6 snaps to the top to close it. They are rosin snaps (used for cloth diapers- why I originally got the press) so they aren't bad to press your face against at night. My son and I were sleeping under it while he was transitioning into his bed. Its warm and soft and comfy!
I'm excited to finally have this- I've been trying to think of a way to use these tees since, well, I graduated (over 10 years ago!)
I still have more tees and my husband was complaining about how heavy the duvet was on our bed, so it looks like I'm gonna make another of these!!

Everytime I see one of these it makes me want to make a t-shirt quilt.  I never thought about making it a duvet though.  Well done.

This is a little easier than a blanket! I too was worried about making a blanket!

I love this idea! Such a good functional way of preserving memories. I've been saving t-shirts from my school years (and beyond) for this exact purpose. I don't have near enough to make a quilt yet through. When the time is right...
