A while back I started a t-shirt quilt.  At the time it was sort of an aimless project, because up until recently I only sewed by hand so I figured it would be done when it got done.  Well, recently I moved into a new apartment, and I found myself wanting that quilt pretty badly, as well as being in desperate need of a set of curtains!  I still had a surplus of t-shirts, so I decided, what better way to make curtains than to match them with my quilt?

And so I have clothed my room!



Here is one set of finished curtains, or at least nearly finished - they need another tier at the bottom, but somehow I ran out of t-shirts.  I also need another set of curtains, since I have two windows in my room.  But so far, I'm quite pleased.

And last, but most definitely NOT least...



...the quilt!  Finally finished after nearly half a year on hold, because I bought myself a sewing machine for my birthday!  It's backed with a queen-sized jersey sheet, or at least most of one, and it's so warm and soft and cozy.

I'm so happy!  They're kind of wonky since I just started sewing with a machine, but I think they're pretty awesome, and I like how they pull the room together and of course add some much-needed color to my blah white walls  Smiley

Okay, please don't stalk me from the info on my shirts now, please  Smiley

May I Ask how you constructed your quilt?  Did you use both layers of the t shirts?

Only the quilt top is made of t-shirts.  The bottom is a jersey knit queen-sized flat bedsheet.

Nice job! Cheesy

Thanks!  Smiley
