SO...I decided to take my late fiance, Danny's,  old shirts and make a quilt from them.  But there were so many poor shirts that didn't make the quilt cut (ha...*giggle*) because they were just plain shirts.  So after feeling bad for these clothes, I decided to upcycle them.

And here is the final product.  It doesn't look at as good in the pics, it's a gold color...not so much yellow.  I'm not sure whether I want to tuck all the ends in...I personally think it gives it a little something that the plain ole garter stitch lacks.




And a kinda blurry, but necessary action shot:



I'm going to be making a few more for Danny and I's son, and possibly his two other sons.  So any hints, tips, criticism, advice...yaknow...all that stuff would be appreciated (: 

Thanks for looking!!

That's great for so many reasons!  What a great way to use those t-shirts that are impossible to just throw away!  I like it with the ends out too- it gives it a really interesting texture.  What a great idea!  Smiley

I like it with the ends out, it gives it a little more character.  And what an awesome idea for the leftover shirts.

I agree, it looks good with the ends poking out for texture. And I'm sure Danny's sons would love to have scarves like it for themselves. Well, I don't know them, so I couldn't be sure but it's a really sweet idea and it would be a lovely way for them to have a little something of his for the future and a nice thing about the scarves is they don't take up a lot of space so they can easily be kept and moved from home to home etc. Plus it's something you can snuggle up in in an entirely masculine (or not un-masculine at least) way!
